Networking in the rain


Connecting with strangers in the rain using bluetooth might be the new new thing in networking inspired intimacy. Unstrung looks at a project by to wire Umbrellas with bluetooth connectivity.

Via an umbrella with a PDA embedded in the handle, users create an on the move (and rather drenched) Mesh network whenever it rains. According to the group, the goal of the project is to create “sudden, striking, and unexpected connections between people in public and urban space”, if you’re in to that sort of thing.
