How can we facilitate connections between service providers.
Illumiloon is a signaling device that disaster victims inflate and attach to their homes when other communication systems fail. Users fit their Illumiloons with colored bands that indicate specific needs (i.e. food, water, medical attention), creating a floating network without power or Internet. This impacts the local community by enabling those who have certain resources to share them with their neighbors. Illumiloon also helps official first responders to seamlessly identify and address individual and group needs.
