  1. Bluetooth LAN?
    Server is greenstone, client is your phone app.

    I dont find this amusing.. Privacy issue using Messaging app? and 90 meter max? might as well talk face to face.

  2. for anyone who thinks this is useless: firechat was used heavily during the hong kong protests. so unless you have absolute faith in your information infrastructure providers, its existence is a very good thing. 

  3. "Only works within line of sight," uh wouldn't make more sense to just talk to those people? Unless your sharing secrets, there really ain't no real use of this product. Especially how everything have unlimited text messaging in USA and Canada.

  4. As now:
    "This tiny green widget lets you start a chat room without connecting to the web."

    As should be:
    "This tiny green widget lets you start a team-based online multiplayer game without connecting to the web."

  5. If they increase the range… This could be a very useful product while in the wild, government protest, intelligence communication in a foreign country, etc.. and if they added the ability for the stones to stack in order to increase range.
