HEY BABY,... WANNA POKEN?
POKEN... BUSINESS CARDS 2.0?
One of the other partners of the FIFI congress last week, was a company called POKEN, an interesting new product. Based on relatively simple Radio Frequency Identity Device technology, it enables you to exchange contact data, almost like swapping business cards.
Cleverly, you can add LINKEDIN profiles too, connecting the gizmo to established social networks.
By 'high-fiving' your counterpart, the tags are exchanged. The poken lights up (green light) when the data has been swapped. You then stick it in a USB port to upload and hey presto...a new friend.
Watch out for the limited edition 'Geisha' poken! More information at www.doyoupoken.com .
