Asha: Reuniting Refugees Across The World
The Interaction Design Programme at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design shares some of their latest projects with PSFK.
Asha is an enquiry into the possibility of using mobile phones and Bluetooth to create ad-hoc communication networks in situations where phone and internet fail. Designed as an iPhone application, Asha helps reunite families and loved ones torn apart by disasters and conflict, through simple relay-based networks using humans and cell phones to carry tiny packages of information – like a name cross-referenced with a location/time stamp.
