FugaParade is developed in the UK by Curvor Limited.
It is a smartphone app that allows people on parades to add an extra visual dimension to their march.
The user selects a certain set of colours they want to show. When they hold their phone upright it will flash in those chosen colors. The flashing will be synchronized with all the other FugaParade users around them – creating a visual effect across the whole parade.
In the background, the app connects to any other FugaParade devices around it, forming a peer to peer network. This works across all common iPhones, iPads and Android phones. The user doesn’t need to be connected to a mobile network or WiFi, as in parades network coverage can be poor.
