What it Is: Poken is a new way to collect the contact information of the social media, from the people you meet in real life. It’s a kind of an electronic business card. How it works? Very simple. A Poken is a small cube, looking like a panda bear or a voodoo doll. When you tap Poken-to-Poken, you are instantly connecting to your friends or colleagues.
Why it’s cool: We live in a digital world, using social networks more and more. Using a Poken is a great way to bundle all of the networks you are using; Facebook, Twitter, everything is possible. It’s so simple, just tap Poken-to-Poken and you’ve got yourself a new contact, with all the contact info at once. It’s a nice and easy way to expand your social network.
What it is: 7Scenes is a new GPS platform, which you can use for games and tours! It sounds simple, and it is. An example. The Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam wants to give his costumers the opportunity to do a ‘search’ within the city, in which they show them all the historical beauties in the centre. They simply have to create a ‘scene’ on the website of 7Scenes, and the players can do the search on their mobile pones, by using their GPS.
Why it’s cool: It’s cool because 7Scenes offers a complete new type of gaming, consider it as ‘real life gaming’. The players are playing with each other, using the GPS systems on their mobile phones. Organisations are able to use the location-based content display, to increase the costumer relations.
