The NRC research group Tampere today announced the upcoming availability of the feature Nokia Hello. Using the chip NFC present on some devices, such as the Nokia C7, you can communicate with other devices to exchange information or to make appointments or simply organize a coffee break at work. The purpose of this project is to interact with colleagues from work without verbal communication, especially good for multi languages.
The Near Field Communication, by magnetic induction and is capable of communicating at a distance of 20 cm. Dr. Marcus Redströmm PhD, who led the team, said:
“The average technician currently spends more than two hours per day in verbal exchanges. By enabling our mobile devices to support the weight, teams can become more productive, focused and reduce noise up to 85 percent.
“Unlike computers, human beings tend not to optimize the efficient use of time. The fruits of this research will help to fix this. It’s all part of Nokia‘s mission of ‘Connecting People’, but in this case the connection is completely electronic and does not contain traces of human feeling. ”
Redströmm continued: “Many of our most recent projects are designed to neutralize the feelings or unwanted contact. Release of last year Nokia MonVoice, which reduces the frequency range of the human voice during telephone calls, has proved a huge success.
Somewhat disturbing the reasons for Dr. Marcus, not so much the type of software and its functions, but the motivation to avoid physical and verbal contact with colleagues, certainly not a condition akin to us Latins.
Hello Nokia, presumably in Italy will be Hello Nokia, will be available for free at the Nokia Store. So if you can not wait to say “Hello” to connect without even talking to this software from you, what do you think?
