See and be seen

Nokia has launched Sensor, a software that uses Bluetooth to indicate and start proximity interactions - i.e. people within 10-30m of you.

You create a folio - like a little web page - that others in your physical location can see. Then you can check out the folios of other Sensor users nearby, exchange messages, and share files.

When other Sensor phones come within this circle, your phone “senses” them and you can see their folios and send them messages. As soon as you step out of each other’s circles, you are no longer able to communicate via Sensor. Free to download and enjoy (better to have a Nokia phone though).
