Drone Landscapes, Intelligent Geotextiles, Geographic Countermeasures

I feel like I’m maybe getting too into BLDGBLOG, but this post seems really interesting in a smart home context, although maybe a little larger in scope. Along the theme of “Design of Environments” is this post considering “speculative geotextiles,” allowing sensing of presence, reconfigurable landscapes, containing hills that roll and move, or respond to natural disasters. Based on laying underground cables, these networks could be configured to produce hundreds of mile-long swaths of sensor networks. Evocative.
