The Mind The Future smart box is a project collaboration with W.I.R.E. - the think tank based in Switzerland. We created an LCD module which was added to a small run of their Mind The Future publication.
The LCD offers titbits of information contained inside the box to viewers on the outside. It also keeps very accurate time. It runs on a single USB rechargeable AA battery for over 3 months, and has various modes controlled by an accelerometer which relates to the way the box is placed on a shelf.
The content is intended to be updated by users - so we added a Micro SD card slot to the circuit board to make this possible.
