Abstract

Display appropriation provides a means by which mobile users can cyber-forage local display hardware to provide them with access to a high-quality output device. However, displays are of little use without applications to drive them and yet the nature of application support has been largely ignored in the field – with the prevailing assumption being that applications will be cloud-based and Web-centric. In this demonstration we show a system that presents an alternative vision in which users are able to cyber-forage for both display and compute resources in their local area – enabling them to execute high-performance applications that would not be possible using purely Web-centric technologies. The demonstration leverages a cohesive suite of existing systems, i.e. cloudlets, Internet Suspend/Resume (ISR), Yarely and Tacita, to deliver this vision.
