1st outdoor installation test




First outdoor installation of our prototype. Volume is at a low level (intentionally), the interface is powered by one Lithium Ion battery pack – 3.7V 6600mAh (without the solar panel and smaller battery shown in the 2nd image above).

We are testing the battery duration as of 2pm Sunday the 24th of January, 2015. The interface will need to be active (triggering the audio) from 9am to 9pm, 7 days a week for 5 weeks when it is installed as a public sound installation in the Blue Mountains.

Weather conditions today are cloudy, thunder, with a light rain. Location is our backyard at 66 Prince George St, Blackheath, NSW, Australia.
