Seems to use somewhat low pressure steam being condensed at high flow rates to create a forced induction setup, so a kind of jet pump? In theory, a high speed flash boiler could use sea water to source the steam for the setup since at high enough speeds the boiler shouldn't cake up. I wonder if this could be chained with a marine ramjet downstream?

Okay, I am mildly impressed. Compact camping stove with attached thermoelectric generator. But the trick being part of the electric output is shunted to a fan, for forced draught to cool the radiator fins of the TEG module, and to provide forced induction to operate the stove as a rocket stove, to boost heat output even more, and allow you to use crap fuel.

Fujitsu Develops Information Device Technology to Automatically Deliver and Run Applications Needed at Particular Time and Place : Fujitsu Global
Er, so they propose a system where an external entity can push software at will to a user, force it to execute within a defined geotemporal time/location, then forcibly delete said app and data when you leave the confines of the geotemporal coordinates. Nothing can go wrong there...

If you actually care about the data, you would only provide it via a local web interface or some kind of thin client analogue. Allowing potentially untrusted apps to install, execute, then delete is malware behavior, even if by some miracle you could sandbox it somehow.

Using NFC as way to introduce the data to the portable device isn't bad though, as way to pass URL's or somesuch, though having a laptop at registration showing a custom QRcode per person achieves the same ends though.

AAI, Overwatch and ViaSat to Demonstrate FASTCOM(TM) Expeditionary Cellular Communications Network at AUSA 2010 Annual Meeting & Exposition
FASTCOM provides a way to force a cellular network onto an area by literally flying cellular base station microcells as UAV cargo pods to function as a data relay node, providing 3G communications in areas with disabled (but not jammed/denied) cellular networks. Such as Egypt for example during the recent protests.
