INTK has their Uncloud, might be interesting: http://www.intk.com/uncloud . Wifi deadrops are heating up too, like CloudFTP on Kickstarter. There’s also an app for android that does the same.

The analog Deaddrops remind me of the couches by Cabracega or Bertrand Planes. I saw them at Shift ’08: http://www.flickr.com/photos/torke20/2947384157/
