Google’s annual Google I/O developer conference kicks off on Wednesday and Google is planning an interesting, and perhaps scary, experiment. During the conference, attendees’ every move will be tracked by a network of sensors wired throughout the Moscone center in San Francisco. The sensors will also track temperature, humidity, air quality and noise levels in an effort to build visualizations of the activity within Moscone during Google I/O. Data will be analyzed and visualizations will be displayed on screens all around the conference, and then all data collected will be open sourced and made available to all after the event is over.
