a wearable bracelet that is capable of exchanging contact & biographical information during a handshake. the LED display woven into the device shows personal logos, depending on the amount of hands that have been shaken. when the user returns to an information kiosk, it displays a list of new contacts.
the device consists of an array of LED lights, a circuit board, a flat battery under the wrist & an infrared (IR) transceiver positioned near the back of the thumb pointing toward the hand.

I like the idea, but nobody is going to wear a big bracelet like that. That's just a pitty of a good idea if you ask me...
At the same time very difficult to realize (I have also been working on a similar project). How can you recognize somebody that has similar interest. What kind of communication can come in place if you get to know people by looking at them? What interaction must take place?
