Shake4Action: Gestural Mobile Coordination

Coordination of and communication between large numbers of individuals, especially in situations that are prone to change rapidly, requires a common output and a recognizable input. Shake4Action looks at how we can organize large groups by augmenting SMS, email, and phone calls with mobile gestures. This project builds a platform to receive information of varying types (such as keywords, touch tones, and gestures), and return information that can be re-interpreted on output by each participant.
