MIT’s View of the World

According to MIT LabCast:

The Comm.unity platform enables mobile devices to discover and communicate with each other in close proximity. It also transforms these devices into social sensors, and allows programmers to rapidly develop locally and socially aware applications.

What this means is you are standing next to someone who has a smart device, (whether you strike up a conversation or not) and that person’s smart device will remember you and add you to that person’s network.
