Serendipity from Hoang M Nguyen of CREATIVEsessions is a neat little gadget designed to take the concept of social media to new heights. Serendipity is a pocket watch-shaped gadget that lets you connect with and share information with friends like never before.

Serendipity users can load their device with apps that interest them like games, sports, news and social networking sites. You select the apps by moving your finger along a crescent-shaped scroll wheel, which lets you easily go from one app to another without having to open up a new screen. The device also folds out width-wise, providing users with a full QWERTY keyboard to type with.

Users could create a profile that would be partially visible for others to see. The standard amount of personal information could be uploaded, along with documents like resumes. Serendipity lets you add friends and even has a killer radar feature that pops up and helps you find your friends when they are nearby.
