For the usability test at the Bodelschwinghschule I enabled geocaching functionality for the XO. For now the geocaches are hardcoded for each laptop, though. You can display the cache by clicking the ‘Show Cache’ button. Your position is displayed by default.
Another progress made is to enable collaboration via the great groupthink library by Benjamin M. Schwartz (get it from its repository). It offers several shared datastructures. The new version of the Pippy activity and Arithmetic are using it already. It look very promising and I’m sure it is a very good approach to encapsulate the collaboration things a developer has to do (even though, the Hello Mesh activity gives a good example how to start with collaboration on an XO).
However, I managed to connect several XOs to let them share the geospace activity. Visulization stuff is in progress; for now only the positions of each XO user is shared, logged and updated.
