Pandas, bees, aliens and voodoo skeletons aren’t the first things to spring to mind when you consider social networking. Unless you have a poken: a plastic creature that exchanges social networking details via RFID. After meeting and greeting in the real world, users who want to connect online can whip out their poken keyrings and ‘high five’ them. Details are transferred between the RFID chips, ready to be uploaded to a user’s profile when the poken is plugged into a USB port.
