On the occaocto-logo-transparent-backgroundsion of transmediale 2013, Telekommunisten unveil the most radically disruptive project in the history of telecommunications to potential investors and partners, bringing the transformative power of digital communication to the physical sphere with a global sharing platform for the transmission of physical objects. OCTO is building a global system to interconnect every household and place of business with pneumatic tubes, which permits high-speed delivery of packages to and from any subscriber worldwide.

 The first OCTO prototype system provides unprecedented vacuum-speed, physical, capsule-packet communications, enhancing the social experience and creativity of the transmediale visiting public. The OCTO prototype system is installed throughout the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, connecting all the event spaces, integrating thematic activities like never before. A functional prototype of central capsule router/distributor P7C-1 demonstrates advanced performativity, and elegant modular remote stations inspire a new generation to imagine the effortless experience of the future of pneumatic messaging right in the comfort of their homes or offices!

Be one of the first to invest in the next wave in social, making the social physical: OCTO!
