Low Tec Communication Project
We used hand signals and flags to communicate across campus without the aid of high tech communication devices. We were not allowed to use any of the following:
Our group created a list of hand signals associated with colored flags (red, green, white, black) in order to communicate messages. The alphabet was divided into 3 equal parts which were associated with arm signals. The decoders wrote down the messages as they received them.
The only problem we had with our system was that the colors of the flags were not bright enough to distinguish between green and white. We forgot to factor in atmospheric distortion. As far as any other distractions, our method was undisturbed by sounds or other people.
