You are having the time of your life: skiing, visiting a picturesque village or attending an interesting conference or concert. It's so great that you would like your friends to know how it feels. Not to mention you'd like to relive it later. How to convey this experience to others? Why is it so difficult to capture the moment and pass it on for others to enjoy?
The challenge of the ExpeShare project (2007 - 2009) is to make sharing of the experience easy and secure, right where and when it happens. Therefore novel concepts and networking technologies will be created in the project to facilitate sharing of information between mobile devices such as mobile phones, MP3s, DVD players, memory sticks and digital cameras. The project goes beyond web-based sharing of digital multimedia content such as pictures, videos, music and games. It will achieve its goals by innovative mobile peer-to-peer networking solutions, multimedia content and community management facilities as well as interaction solutions that utilise a variety of devices.
Experience is a complex phenomenon that goes beyond the picture or video clip that can easily be captured. The project will attempt to define this concept of experience and develop intuitive tools for capturing, managing, sharing and replaying experiences. Selecting the peer(s) or community with whom to share is another issue requiring innovative interactive solutions.
Peer-to-peer networks suffer from an image of illegality. They are, however, efficient means for distributing information. The ExpeShape project will take the peer-to-peer networking paradigm to the mobile world, while also suggesting ways to secure the legality of the exchanged content. Special attention will be given to the management of content rights and understanding the associated value chains.
The project will set up real-world pilots to evaluate the developed concepts. The pilot environments may be e.g. tourist areas, sports centres, public spaces and events or professional meetings.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion
Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
