Organizing group hangouts could be as easy as just showing up somewhere with a small beacon in your pocket if the FindR Communicator ever goes from concept to reality. The FindR Communicator was created by Oskar Santamaria for Nokia and is designed to get friends to meet up somewhere other than online.
The FindR Communicator is simple and easy to use; simply create a group with all of your friends and input it into the communicator. The communicator comes with small beacons that each friend can put around their keychains or in their pockets. When two or more friends are together, their beacons will send their location to the other people in the group. The location is projected from the beacon and the individual receiving it can decide whether to join in on the fun or abstain.
