Introduction: (hide)

CellHunter is a game with the goal to find as much unknown mobile cells as you can and submit them. You are playing in groups against other groups and collect the information together. Depending on the type of the collected cell you get points. New cells count more points than already known cells.

To play the game you need an Openmoko Cellphone running a FSO based distribution (like SHR) and a working Internetconnection on it. The best is to have GPRS so you cann submit information everywhere you are. With CellHunter you grab the cell information and submit them to the server. You send about 1kb data per cell so with all 7 cells you will get a transfer volume of about 7kb.

You can download the program here (Package, Version 0.5.0) / (Debian) / (Source). To install just copy it to your Openmoko and run "opkg install ./cellhunter_0.5.0_armv4t.ipk". Now you can start hunting cells.

Upon the first start you will be asked for a groupname and a password for this group. A non-existing group will be created automatically. Now everyone knowing this password can collect points for your team. With the "CellID abfragen" button you refresh the cell information (CellID, GPS, Serverstatus). A click on "Daten uebertragen" transfers the data so the server.

This can be automatically done with the buttons below. Note: Cells submitted with GPS coordinates count more points, so it worth waiting to get a fix before you start transmitting.

As a nice sideeffect (or it can be the reason to participate) we will get a whole list with all cells and when there is enough data per cell we will get the position of it. With the position you we can provide "location based services" or something like that. But in the meantime you can collect points. You can query the database with the Google KML format, with the time i will offer a real api.

Please report Bugs to cellhunter "at" omoco "dot" de. I also like to hear every thing i can improve, so mail me with your ideas.

At this point i like to thank the following persons:
- petabyte (for the Debian package)
- Thomas [tsm121 "at" gmail "dot" com] (for the icon)

So at the end I just like to say: Have Fun!
