Wearable Location-Based Mobile Social Network
PSFK Talks With Yaron Moradi Of MagnetU, a platform that connects nearby users with shared interests.
PSFK has been tracking the development of services and devices that execute on the idea of making connections between individuals that would otherwise never meet.
MagnetU is a platform that connects nearby users with shared interests, powered by a small wearable short-range wireless device synced to users’ mobiles. These sensors are tied to an online profile, where users describe the kinds of people they would like to meet. The platform gives would-be strangers context for conversation by sending a notification to each mobile device when a match is nearby.
