Sensing and changing the space through physical computing

Instead of using regular computers as nodes in the system, it will be interesting to explore ideas around ubiquitous computing, that computer processing will be distributed in smaller units and have a more or less transparent presence in our lifes. Microcontrollers can both sense spaces through all types of sensors, RFID tags etc., and change spaces through use of light,sound,motors,and forcefeedback etc., so they can be an interface between the audiovisual world and the physical world.
I will be particularly interested in following the development of wireless microcontroller systems which could become an important part of doing interventions in public spaces.
