Snaxxx Tracker is a spaceBrew application that takes in vending machine data
logs it and sends it to the Snack NSA website
Join us on an exploration of the mundanity of the average meta-data input logged by the National Security Administration. From tampon purchases to large quantities of lentil soup, the NSA knows what you're doing and when you're doing it; your snack purchases are no different. This meta-data is used to create assumptions about who you are and what motivates you. Snaxxx Tracker combines soft-circuit buttons, processing, and the web using Spacebrew in order to make commentary on this abusive and privileged accumulation of our boring human tendencies. Note, NSA - if you are reading this, we're cool right?
Lucy Matchett, Nicole Messier, and Joselyn McDonald use 3 nodes to send a pizza cooking message and to trigger the Mary Kate and Asley Pizza "Gimme Pizza" song. We used 2 Processing sketches and Arduino.
