Beacon Bucket Brigade Prototype: iOS Multi-Device Interaction without Networked Connectivity

Beacon Bucket Brigade Prototype: iOS Multi-Device Interaction without Networked Connectivity

These devices are communicating without a networked connection!

A brief demo of our Beacon Bucket Brigade prototype. 

This demo shows iOS multi-device interactions that do NOT rely on networked connectivity. In other words, if the app is installed and active, the devices “find” each other based on proximity.

To our knowledge, this is the first implementation that uses this kind of technology with this type of interaction.

We are deliberately showing this with minimal graphics so as not to confuse the interaction, but intend to “skin” the interactions based on client needs and intellectual properties.
