Wearable technology and Drupal at the Wearable Tech Expo

Hi all, if anyone is interested in wearable technology (device integration, quantified self, augmented reality, etc.) and how it relates to Drupal and some of the exciting work we do, I'll be speaking today on a panel at the Wearable Tech Expo in Universal City:

Hollywood has long driven the imagination with all sorts of advanced technology. In the past this tech was all imaginary but in today's world nothing is left strictly to imagination any longer.

From the wearable technology of Tron: Legacy to the advanced tech of the latest Star Trek, much of it can already be implemented in the real world. This session demonstrates the evolution of wearable tech in the movies to wearable tech in our real lives.

If you're at the expo and can make it to the session, it's in Ballroom C at 3:30pm. Hope to see you there! If you can't make it, by all means please ask any questions here in this discussion and I and other folks in this community will do our best to answer them.

Logging through revisions or nodes

I've managed to integrate my home automation into drupal.
It's available, as a sandbox, on drupal.org
Every event that occurs on my domotica-network (CAN), can be send to my drupal site.
Also i can send events from my drupal site to the domotica-network (and so i can switch the lights, ...).
Also it's integrate with the rules module to for example send an email when some event occures on the domotica-network.

Now, i was looking to create a manner to log events.

IPHONE-JSON

I am from the industrial controls world, where we use a lot of embedded controls. I see no reason why drupal would not be an excellent batch scheduling system. Its almost perfect infact.

But there is just one glaring problem with it that I can not figure out at the moment, and I could really use some help. Its the DATASOURCE module. is it really working? and where is the documentation.

Device integration with Drupal

Is there any active activity in this area? It is very much of interest to me and an area of expertise for me. I'm also involved in similar initiatives in the commercial, academic, and community areas (Pachube, Burning Sky Software, "Web of Things", others).
