Bringing the party to you
“Party in a box” is a package sent out to guests across the United States, letting you share your get together with your loved ones living far away. Those who receive the kit have to send back a photo portraying themselves having fun.
Why it matters

Movidón is an app that allows you to share localised digital messages with friends and followers on your social networks. For instance, you can leave a message for a friend at the entrance of the Museo del Prado. When the friend arrives there, they’ll receive the message which can be music, photos, videos or just a comment about the place.
OneSwarm is a new peer-to-peer tool that gives users explicit control over their privacy by letting them determine how data is shared. Instead of sharing data indiscriminately, OneSwarm allows it to be made public, or shared with just selected friends. OneSwarm calls this friend-to-friend (F2F) data sharing.
