Project Abstract

Pin&play is a new approach of ad-hoc networking among objects that people can attach to large surfaces, such as notes that people pin to notice boards or artifacts that people hang on the walls in their home.

It incorporates augmentation of common vertical surfaces such as walls and notice boards with low-cost conductive material to create smart surfaces as a communication medium.

The objects are attached to such surfaces by means of simple pin connectors, to provide users with a familiar mechanism for adding objects to the network.

The Pin&Play Project is sponsored by the IST-FET programme of the European Commission under contract code IST-2001-37007.
