As mobile devices become more powerful, they affect our everyday lives in ways we don't even realize. Meanwhile, the need for available services in an ever changing, dynamic environment, has given rise to the concept of contextaware computing. Ubiquitous environments augmented with a variety of sensors can provide an adaptable infrastructure to provide services in a personalised context-based approach that has never been possible in the past. Research in the area of mobile computing has therefore focused in developing applications that can work in coordination with such context-aware environments to make our lives more comfortable and enrich our experiences in the digital world. This demonstration presents a prototype which can stream multimedia content to devices in the user's environment while employing a localization mechanism that senses the location of the user's mobile phone and “teleports” the media to the device closest to her at any moment. The prototype also provides a remote controller module running on the mobile phone to allow the user to have control of the streaming media.
