Flosser

Flossing is the phenomenon of drivers travelling back and forth on a designated route to show off their vehicles. The Flosser is a software package designed to be integrated into your car to help pre-determined flossing groups arrange meetings and communicate in real time. The system runs off of GPS data and GPRS networks on a Linux platform. The software provides advanced social rules capable of helping cars and people organize better, as well as connecting the car and city. The project hopes to answer a large number of questions raised by location-based tools and the way the car interacts with the city.
