We used our time at the 2014 Inovación Ciudadana Laboratory in Veracruz, México to further experiment with the laser modem system and its interface.
In addition to using the laser modem to transmit text messages via chat, we also created a separate interface to share files between the two modems. This system used a simple web interface to upload files and messages to a database synced between the two modems. This interface could only be accesed through a local WiFi network created by each of the modems. The idea was to create a model where local, short-range networks could share documents over larger distances with other local networks.
Also, many thanks to: Anna, Cinthia, Diego, Johann and Mariel, who helped as our collaborators and were invaluable in the technical and conceptual development of the project.
