Over the last three years we have built and experimented with the Pushpin computing wireless sensor network platform. The Pushpin platform is a tabletop multihop wireless sensor network testbed comprised of 100 nodes arbitrarily placed within a one-square-meter area. The Pushpin platform's concise form factor and extreme node density allow for fine-grained control of its environment and immediate user interaction, thereby uniquely situating it between simulated and real world sensor networks. This paper details our salient successes and lessons learned along the way. We also discuss how these experiences have shaped our vision of the future of wireless sensor networks and some concrete research directions to follow.
