London: A team of Exeter University students have won 50,000 dollars at a Microsoft sponsored technology competition for developing an app that allows playing music simultaneously across infinite number of devices.
The app called `SoundSynk` connects phones and other devices through a so-called artificial mesh network, allowing them to play the same song on all devices in perfect harmony, BBC reports.
Edward Noel, Rob Parker, Alex Bochenski and Jonathan Neuman together developed the app which has been tested on 75 devices so far and will be made available across all platforms in August.
The app will get its biggest test at the end of August when it will be showcased at a performance at the Reading Festival of up to 80,000 people.
Parker said that with this technology, hyper-local social networks can be created and added that it is the first practical use of this technology and they are excited about its future applications, the report added.
