Music Festival Creates Digital Wristbands That Let You Instantly Befriend Others
By Loke Shi Ying, 04 Jul 2014
The music festival Tomorrowland has created a bracelet that allows festivalgoers to keep in touch with the people they meet during the festival.
Tomorrowland is one of the world’s most notable and most attended music festivals. Every year since 2005, the town of Boom, Belgium, has up to 400,000 music lovers from around the world gathered. Festival attendees are keen to mingle, but staying in touch with people you have met and shared experiences with can be difficult.
Tomorrowland’s bracelets do just that. Press a button on your bracelet, and a Facebook friend request is sent to your new friend, allowing him or her to accept the friend request from you at a later date.
Before the festival, every ticket holder receives an entrance wristband in the mail. They can then log on to a website to key in their details and connect the bracelet to a Facebook app.
This smart festival wristband also grants campsite entrants access to the site, and ensures festivalgoers never have to miss a connection again.
Watch how it works below:
