Just a quick note to let you all know I am giving a talk at the remote Chaos Computer Congress in Germany on Thursday, December 30th. And a plea to help us find the last few backers we need to conclude our campaign successfully. Read the full update.
The update this week is about new features of the companion Android app which lets you interface with your unsurv offline. Read the full update.
This update re-focuses on how to use unsurv offline. You'll learn how to automatically synchronize offline any kind of data on your unsurv using a small home-grown server running on a Raspberry Pi. Read the full update.
This update is about the general goals of the unsurv framework and what kinds of technologies it uses to better understand offline surveillance. Read the full update.
Welcome to the first weekly update about unsurv offline. Over the coming weeks you will learn what inspired this project, how to improve data on OpenStreetMap, and how to automatically synchronize data from unsurv offline to a small, homemade server. First up though: a custom fitness tracker. Read the full update.
