Shake to Know / business card

Shake to Know
Shake to Know

SHAKE TO KNOW (STK) is a portable electronic ring with a trigger area and a minicam on it. Inspired by near field communication and date sync technology, it achieves natural and effective way for personal information exchange. STK dispenses with the dependence of traditional paper-based business card. People bring it as a fashion accessory and exchanging information by the subconscious greeting behavior-shaking hands. When the trigger areas of two STK are detected in limited distance, they send and receive information of each other automatically and the minicam snaps the scenario.
