The goal of project Liberouter has been giving delay tolerant messaging a practical application.
In practice this means, that people can leave messages with a smartphone to battery operated mobile router devices, and other people can then later on retrieve these messages. The routers are not connected to the internet, and will form their own network in a sense. This means that you can send and receive messages even if the usual communications networks are down.
The theme of the project started out with anti censorship kind of scenario, but we have also looked into other possibilities like humanitarian aid.
