home sweet home, we’re back again.

AOS participated to AHAcktitude 2009 in Milan, and it was a great experience.

We presented Bluetooth Wars, a workshop in which the people were able to build their very own Bluetooth media server.

This has many uses, ranging from proximity advertising to political uses in demonstrations or events.

Here below the links to the presentation slides and to the video of the workshop.

AHACKTITUDE

AOS wil be at the AHACKTITUDE meeting in Milan, on November 27-28-29 in Milan.

We will present a really simple, but effective, project, called Bluetooth Wars

We will analyze Bluetooth, a technology that is mostly used to connect devices to our mobile phones, but that can be transformed into a powerful tool for local, pervasive and independent communications.

We will create an open source bluetooth media server and do some experimentations in media distributions, experimenting the aesthetics of mobile media and the practices of pervasive communication.

As a side issue, we will also use our media server to research on the possibilities offered by mobile technologies to observe people, their habits, their movements. We will try to wear the clothes of the Big Brother for once, to investigate just how observed we can be while using our mobile phones and other electronic devices.
