Online/Offline socialness

20Aug10

Simple ideas and a natural evolution from the obsession with everything virtual. I’ll collect on/offline examples here.

The iPad example below isn’t technically social,  but it could be with a couple of tweaks. Rather than just an expensive remote control as in this example, the iPad has a lovely tactic potential of using its 3G access to deliver advanced, very human computing (rather than compromised mobile phone experiences). I’m sure there’s an app to swap rich online profiles with a neighbouring iPad into the address book via the cloud. It reminds me of the original Palm PDA with its infrared business card sharing app. Those were the days.
