App Puts The ‘Neighbor’ Back In Neighborhood
The newly minted 'Home Elephant' application is the start to an ongoing conversation with your neighborhood.
Any crowded city or neighborhood can carry with it a paradoxical sense of isolation for its denizens. The ‘Elephant Home’ app for the iPhone is an attempt to start a dialogue between neighbors that may otherwise go unspoken. Using the geo-location capabilities of the device, the app creates hyper-local chat rooms for posting messages that only your neighbors can read. Seen something suspicious in the neighborhood? Send out an alert to validate your paranoia.
