Talking name tags launched

The interactive name tag helps people connect, reports Agenda live, Inc.


“Interactive tags developed by Rick Borovoy, co-founder of nTag in Boston, store pertinent data – supplied by all attendees at an event – and then use radio signals to match interests and business needs. Worn on a lanyard around the neck, the tag holds a small screen that flashes messages when a person is near someone he or she should meet.


One message might say: “Hi Joe. We have three things in common: We both like baseball, live in the Chicago area, and I need a Web designer.” Joe’s screen would likewise greet his fellow conventioneer, with the last item reading: “And I’m a Web designer.”
