Speakeasy: A Platform for Interactive Public Displays

This is our vision: display and interact with any media type on any kind of device that you want to turn into an electronic public display. We desire to support all media types and devices that exist today as well as those that will exist tomorrow. To explore this vision, we developed two electronic public displays using Speakeasy, a foundational platform that supports ad hoc communication between devices and services with little or no a priori knowledge of one another. We discuss the design, implementation, and our experiences with these two electronic public displays.
