BlueBox is a “bluetooth software and hardware application designed and developed by Maria N. Stukoff and Jon Wetherall for the creative use of mobile phones via bluetooth. As a systems-based art project, it enables the public to network together via bluetooth to play with various designed mobile applications in a coordinated city environment.” This project plays into the “collaborative” use of mobile devices – a topic I’m working in with the SimpleTEXT and UMBRELLLA.net projects – very cool. Some trials are going on in Manchester this weekend – so if you are there, try it out and report back!
