Challange

Political activists, musicians, and entrepreneurs now use digital technology to share their messages and inspire people to think differently. The word movement can mean a lot of things. Motivational, physical, entrepreneurial, and political movements are just a few examples. Let's think about how will people create awareness and enable others to lead change in the future. How could technology contribute to starting a movement?

Concept

Warg is an online service that stores information about different personal broadcasts and allows people to follow certain cameras in order to “see through their eyes” like a warg*. All of that information could be stored, indexed and organized in a cloud.

* Wargs are people with the ability to enter the minds of animals and perceive the world through their senses and even control their actions
