As John explains in his post on Integrating Social Media and Reality, we live in two separate, parallel worlds, with one foot in each. There’s the online world of text, email, online shopping, Internet search, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Then there’s the real world of food, shelter, family, friends, and work. The two intersect, but they’re not tied together in any robust way. Well, at least until now.
Enter Poken! a device you might keep on a lanyard around your neck or clipped to your jacket, backpack, or bag. Need to exchange information or keep up-to-date with a colleague? If you both have a Poken you can touch the hands of the Poken together and they’ll sense each other’s presence. After a wireless exchange of links, both hands will pulsate with a green glow to announce the successful transfer of information. The magic happens when the Poken is connected online to your personalized online portal.
Way better than a business card ~ amazing social networking! Is this new? Or have I been living under a rock?

Great post! Poken is definitely on the forefront on how people exchange information with each other. This is the greatest tool for exchanging information at business conventions, workshops, networking events, highschool reunions and at parties. I’m definitely spreading the word about this great device. Happy Poken!
