Summary MobiES allows users to interact with data contained in a mobile device on a larger screen by detecting the proximity between the two and expanding the mobile's interface into the screen. More devices can be connected so you can share information between them.
Description MobiES facilitates extending the display of a mobile device to a public screen and using both displays to form a larger screen area. Bringing a phone next to the public screen triggers a special user interface to be shown, which allows the user to browse content or share content between 2 mobile devices positioned on either side of the public display and dragging content from one phone to another.
