The Proxidating software is now available in a dozen languages and is being released in 20 countries, highlighting the lofty ambitions of developer Kangourouge.
The proxidating site is multi-language and allows direct download of the software.
According to the software developers, the target audience for this service is the "young, urban and connected".
"The generation that has the latest mobile phones, all with Bluetooth functionality" confirms Matthieu Palmade of Marseille-based Kangourouge.
With PIX, Xenofreaks have hit on an idea that may change the way people interact with each other, especially those whom we don't know, but would like to.
By no means would it offer all of the functionality of the ingenious n TAG system, but enough to be much better than paper badges, and at a fraction of the cost of dedicated servers.To use the service you download the Proxidating software, install it on your mobile, activate the Bluetooth connection and fill in your profile and the profile you are seeking, add a photo of yourself and the message you wish to send.Then you go out walking/clubbing/shopping and if a compatible partner comes within Bluetooth distance (about 15 metres), your phone rings and the pic and message of the nearby "match" person pops up on your phone and vice verca (i.e your pic and message pops up on theirs).The third new such matchmaking service was introduced this week - the Proxidating locality-based matchmaking service for Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone users, offers an interesting new way for people to get together. ), the Proxidating service uses Bluetooth connectivity to make the initial contact and with mobile phone usage now universal in many countries, particularly among the young, socially mobile and technology-savvy group, we think it has anormous potential.American start-up n TAG has produced an interactive name badge for conferences and social events that significantly improves the quality of people-to-people connectivity.
