Danish based Imity gave a good speak at Where 2.0 about their mobile community software. Imity are not interested in Where 2.0 but Here 2.0 as Co-Founder Claus Dahl explained. By using the Bluetooth capabilities in mobile phones Imity want to create a user generated community in your present location hence Here 2.0.
They showed a scan of every Bluetooth device at the conference on a slide and stating that information for the persons behind the T-610â€™s and 6230â€™s mobile phones is currently not available.
The Imity software can utilize the Bluetooth signal to establish a list of people within a 10 meter radius, so social interaction becomes possible within a place. You can message people using the same software within the vicinity and hereby allow you to meet people in a new way.
And even if you have your phone kept away, a plugin feature for MySpace or OpenBC among others saves the data of people passing by, so the next time browsing MySpace you can be lucky to get a notification that you have passed this person at this place and when.
The UI allows you to view whoâ€™s in the room right now and the personal history of each person you have met, so you can see when you had the last interaction with a certain person or you could make a note of the situation or a person by bookmaking.
They are signing beta testers right now, so hurry up if you want it.
