Poken: Social Networking With High Fives

poken

Children are increasingly interested in social networking websites such as MySpace and Facebook. However, children under 13 don’t really have a lot of safe options for an online presence and the technical curve can be difficult for some. This is all solved with the RFID-enabled Poken.

These little toys come with big hands for high-fiving. Two kids can high five each other’s Poken and their information will be transferred to the device. Once they get home, they can use a USB cable to download their friend’s information. It’s a unique way of interaction that really brings people closer. You have to actually talk to people in real life? Now that is innovation.
