Watch 880 iPhones Dance Like Fireflies In The Sky [Video]

This is hypnotic. Crowdflow.net tracked the movement of 880 iPhones through Europe in 2011 and then put together this video, showing where they ended up. The results look like stars swirling in a nebula, or bioluminescent plankton mating in the ink black sea.

    This could only be done in Europe. If only they could have shown all of the iPhones being disabled as US owners shut them off as they travel…

    The usual idea is that you would use NFC to set up the link between the two devices and then do an automatic hand over to a different protocol for doing the actual transfer of data – eg Bluetooth,iphone 5
