No new-comer to the new media scene (active since 1991), the Bureau of Inverse Technology (BIT) continues to provide innovative tools for processing the information that often gets lost in the massive data spectacle. Past BIT projects have included a quantitative video analysis of Golden Gate Bridge suicide jumps ('Suicide Box'), a rocket that gathers crowd information for accurate estimates of public demonstrations, and a method for 'improving' the GPS-based signage on taxis. A more recent work is 'Sniffer,' one of those robotic, toy dogs, re-engineered to sniff out sources of radiation that exceed EPA standards. And for you DIY types, BIT now produces development kits with instructions. - Ryan Griffis
