In the past, when anyone asked how they could find me online, I usually just told them to type Incredibly Hot Men into Google and hit the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button. But the way Google keeps changing its indexing criteria, it’s only a matter of time before it improperly redirects to the website of a slightly less-hot guy such as George Clooney or Abraham Lincoln.
But soon, none of that will make any difference because everyone will be carrying a little gadget called a Poken that, when held together with the Poken of someone you want to exchange online info with, instantly exchanges all your online social media info with that person.
Email, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and the list goes on for as many social media sights as you want to set up.
Pokens fit right in your pocket, purse or on your keychain and you can start gathering your friends information instantly right-out-of-the-box after you activate it (but, you will need access to a computer and register online before they can gather yours).
I would love it if everyone got one of these. I am constantly asked for my email, my blog, my Facebook and, especially, where daily passengers can find the photos I took of their hot air balloon flight (I work in the hot air balloon industry and take TONS of photos). It would make writing all this stuff down a thing of the past.
At first, I thought these things were geared more toward high-school kids given the colorful cartoony look. But Pokens have obvious business applications as well, so after researching a bit, I see they have a grown-up business model as well (at a substantial price increase however). They would be perfect for use at conventions.
And, of course, there’s the dating applications: Imagine a hot chick in a night club. She gives you the look. You give her the look. She stirs her drink. You twist your fabulous Snidely Whiplash mustache. Neither of you speak, but you hold up your Pokens and silently exchange online information so that later you can exchange bodily fluids. All without saying a word.
Pokens are available right now from Poken Zoo (and fulfilled by Amazon.com) for $17.95
