Grand St.'s 'Party Hacking' project enabled guests to instantly share photos and view a live stream on screens.

Grand St., a community for well-crafted personal technology, built a Google+ Party Mode Photobooth that combined social tools with an old-fashioned booth. Their ‘Party Hacking’ project aimed to provide an interactive and engaging experience for partygoers.

The group used Google+ Party Mode, which enables people to share photos with an entire party in real-time. They built an open standing booth with a camera sat on a tripod.

An outline on the floor showed people where to stand to have their photograph taken. To trigger the camera, a wireless RF button was mounted to the wall so it could be self-service.
