Submission + - Smart Party: Digital DJing for the Home (

An anonymous reader writes: UCLA Ph.D. student Kevin Eustice and the Laboratory for Advanced Systems Research have developed a location-aware wireless collaboration system that enables users' Wi-Fi enabled devices to share music and user preferences. One of their demo applications, dubbed "The Smart Party," lets users collaborate to select music tracks to be played at a party environment. Location-sensitive, the application only considers input from users actually in the room. Eustice and his team have deployed the application in three different rooms within their UCLA laboratory.
