Junkyard Jumbotron

Groups

The Junkyard Jumbotron (JJ) lets one take a collection of random screens and instantly stitch them into one large virtual display simply by taking a picture of their arrangement. The software works with laptops, smartphones, tablets�anything that runs a web browser. It shows a new way of using mobile devices to create a feeling of community: ganging mobile devices together to create a shared experience. And the JJ is designed from the ground up to make the process of connecting heterogeneous user devices together "in the wild" easy and fun, with no anti-social wireless configuration, app installation, or device compatibility anxiety.
