Backslash: a toolkit for protesters facing hyper-militarized, surveillance-heavy police / Boing Boing

Backslash — an “art/design” project from NYU Interactive Technology Program researchers Xuedi Chen and Pedro G. C. Oliveira — is a set of high-tech tools for protesters facing down a “hyper-militarized,” surviellance-heavy state adversary, including a device to help protesters keep clear of police kettles; a jammer to foil Stingray mobile-phone surveillance; a mesh-networking router; a “personal cloud” that tries to mirror photos and videos from a protest to an offsite location; and tools for covertly signalling situational reports to other protesters.
