The Greek Diaspora Project explores the relationship between Greece and its diaspora in the current context of economic crisis and beyond. It investigates how the Greek diaspora can affect Greece’s political and economic transformation and explores ways for the Greek state, economy and society to interact with its diaspora. This project is designed to reach wide audiences in the scholarly and policy communities.
The Stone Soup team is working on redesigning the Diaspora Map to enrich the layout and understanding of the data showed on the map. On a second stage, we will rebuild the back-end technologies and enable the map to depict and correlate more data sources.

The founder envisioned a technology that would allow users to legally create new works online while compensating artists via micro-payments. OCL would allow rights holders to create and deliver multiple types of content via an app or platform in such a way that rights can be cleared for usage and re-usage.
This technology could provide a solution for media management and rights ownership. The Stone Soup team is helping build the fundamentals of the system.

Camerize envisioned a crowd-sourced live video production on a scale that had never been done before. The founders wanted to build new technology enabling live video streaming from multiple mobile devices and editing the incoming feeds in a centralized control room.
The Stone Soup team has built the Camerize iPhone camera app and the platform needed to process the live streams. Multiple cameras stream to the Camerize server where the feeds are edited live into a single stream.
Camerize has already been used and tested for live coverage of the Greek elections in January and September 2015 and the Star Wars premiere around the globe in december 2015. It is being developed as a product for professionals and consumers. International clients are using the system.

The Founders of The City Game wanted to inspire people to do a good deed every day. What puts most people off, is the complicated, time-consuming and boring actions they need to do in order to help. The City Game opens up the world of acting responsibly to all those who always wanted to do something good, but didn’t know where to start.
The City Game gives you the opportunity to learn about meaningful actions, have fun while doing them and get rewarded while making a difference. Complete the missions when you perform real-world actions. You can choose one of the missions available like recycling, conserving energy, providing clothes you don’t wear any more to people in need, donating blood, or raising awareness on many social and environmental issues. Whether you are an active and socially and environmentally aware person or just want to avoid adding up to the issues our planet is suffering from.
The Stone Soup team was engaged to make the Android app ready to ship to market and then work on additional features that would enrich the functionality and user experience.
Frink! came to live inside the walls of Stone Soup. People of different disciplines met each other and began the Frink! project.
The Founders of Frink envisioned a business-to-business tool that would on the one hand attract new clientele to nightlife business owners and on the other hand benefit end-users by enabling them to discover new bars and incentivise them by offering a free drink.
The idea was to build an application where the user could enter a lottery and have the chance to win a free drink in one of the registered bars.
The Stone Soup team helped develop the website for the registered businesses, the Android and iOS applications and the back end of the system.

The vision of the Opsiz founders was to create a social blogging platform to help empower the public voice of the people. The users of the system would be able to express an opinion and / or comment on a subject. The project goal was to make the search of blogs easier, as well as, the reading, correlating and visualisation of comments.
The Stone Soup team’s responsibility was to develop a blogging tool that would allow writers to upload their content and compare or combine it to relevant material enabling and promoting discussion and dialog. During the process we experimented with the notion of extending the life-time of a blogpost by allowing the reader to navigate through shifting arguments and/or topics and showing topic bursts over time. We also experimented with content presentation and interaction by detecting and classifying topics, detecting arguments or topic shifts and enabling a simpler and more intelligent read.

The client had built a reading comprehension software program called Accomplish Reading. The program’s goal is to help children 9+ yr improve their reading comprehension. It was developed as a requirement for a PhD in the field of learning and reading instruction at the University of Pittsburgh.
We were approached to help in fine-tuning and add the final pieces to the app and assist in pushing it to the Apple App Store.
The Aquanetix founders wanted to use software and hardware technology to provide a solution for the aquaculture industry. The industry is in dire need of better information-based management strategies to increase performance and sustainability.
The goal was to use Cloud Technology, smart-phones and a game-like graphical interface to make knowledge of aquaculture management practices more accessible to even the smallest operations.
The Stone Soup team worked with Aquanetix for an extended period of time to build a system that allowed real-time data collection by the farm workers and to test the system at the actual fish farms. Data collection focused on feeding, environmental parameters, stock behavior and health status, infrastructure conditions and other parameters that affect farm performance.

The City Share founders envisioned a social travel network that lets you easily save and share your favorite locations, and collects suggestions from your friends that you can take with you on your travels.
The goal was to have a demo version of their App in two weeks, because the team had been invited to present at the Web Summit conference in Dublin. They were invited by Stone Soup to come over to Athens, Greece with the clear goal of creating a working minimum viable product (MVP) before their plane back to Amsterdam took off. Everything was provided: lodging, a place to work, food and office supplies.
By the end of the second week, they were able to get a basic version ready to demonstrate and release to testers. Siemen from Big Nerd Ranch wrote a blogpost about the pressure cooker experience.
The app was launched in the Dutch app store in May 2014.
