The Conceptual Solution
OpenBookBag is a concept platform for an alternative peer to peer sharing and review mechanism that socializes the solitary act of literature review, while also providing an open channel for “boosting” popular reading. OpenBookBag combines hardware and software using mesh networking through WiFi, cellular, and Bluetooth for direct file sharing and interaction. This does not need the internet for functionality, but is enhanced by the internet for maximum impact.
There are two main aspects to this platform, which revolve around a software solution in the form of a smartphone application (and a companion web app for data analytics) and a hardware solution providing a repository in the form of the "internet of things."
The Software Solution
The Hardware Side
.....walking down a campus path beside the mechanical engineering department, and as you pass by you can browse a repository of mechanical engineering faculty-related articles stored in and distributed from a light pole on your OpenBookBag smartphone app. You might be an artist, but something in an article's abstract catches your eye that you think would be useful for your own network. "Boost" that article via your smartphone application and let the author knows that there are people who would love to read his article in popular vernacular that can be applied in everyday life.
