“Field Computing”, is an ongoing interdisciplinary research project to design and build wearable devices for use in citizen science applications. The works from this project is derived from the fields of wearable electronics, citizen science and environmental biomonitoring through a critical design perspective. Data Har-Vest, one of the works in this series, is a wearable tool that collects physical artifacts and contextual data about fungi for scientific surveys. An early prototype for this tool is discussed along with design considerations.
