How do I get there?
No pre-registration is required. You go from site to site and speak with the homeowners and technical experts. You can cycle, walk or take your own vehicle to any of the sites. We have tried to select homes that are spread out across the City so that there should be one near where you live. We suggest that you get out to see the homes nearest to you and then if a particular technology interests you then make your way to the homes that include that feature.
