Panda Poken USB showing

Before the likes of Facebook and MySpace exploded on to the scene, keyboard monkeys (yes, that means you) had to communicate with likeminded geeks in the real world. Hang on a second…they still do. Even if it’s just to exchange social networking info. The bummer is, jotting down email addresses, user IDs and screen names takes forever. ‘Say that again? Kissybongo227?’ So thank heavens for Poken.

Poken high five!

High Five!

Set to revolutionise the way social networkers…er, socialise, this keyring-friendly USB device lets you swap contact details instantly. Simply pull out your Poken and ‘high five’ it with your new best friend’s. Clever RF technology then zaps the info between the devices, so next time you log on to your favourite site, your profiles are linked. Genius!

Poken transferring details

High five together to zap info between Poken!

Poken plugged into USB port

Just pop it into any USB port!

Each time you successfully ‘Poken’ a new friend, a green light glows on your cute little critter’s hand. And don’t worry if you’re outrageously popular because Poken can store up to 64 contacts before each upload. An orange light warns when it’s nearing its maximum capacity, so you can avoid swapping info with the spotty nerd intent on discussing Boba Fett’s helmet and concentrate on exchanging details with the drop dead gorgeous gossip who’s just uploaded a heap of holiday pics. Result!

The Poken website

keep track of your contacts on the Poken website

Click on to the Poken site and you can view contacts alphabetically or chronologically. You can also group contacts with a label, write notes and much, much more.

Don’t worry about sharing any IDs you don’t want to (there’s nothing worse than swapping Facebook details with the boss, then remembering your page is packed with pics of the cat dressed as Hitler) because your online Poken account lets you choose which of your profiles you want to share.

A Poken contact card

Write notes on each of your contacts on the website

You can even create multiple identities and assign them to different modes on your Poken. Then when you’re out and about, simply cycle through ‘em by pressing your Poken’s palm. It’s like having an instantly customisable business card. We think Poken will totally transform the way social networkers interact in the real world. Collecting friends has never been easier. So hit that Buy button and prepare to be popular!

Customer Reviews

Hi again, thanks for awnsering my previous question, but can the poken be used so if I had a poken and my freind also had one, I could quickly give them videos, pictures, etc, and do that many times? (in simpler words, could I use poken to give my freind something one day, and give him something else at a different time).

Firebox says: Sorry, you can only share information within Poken's 'business card' framework. This is designed to be an electronic business card sharing device and not just for sharing any electronic media.
Hi! I have two questions for you: 1. When will the panda poken be back in stock? 2. Does poken only exchange social networking data? (eg. Does it do Email, etc. ) Thanks!

Firebox says: Hi there, unfortunately the Panda Poken won't be coming back any time soon. The Poken can exchange a whole range of social information, not limited to just social networking sites, including an email address, a photograph and telephone numbers.
Find more Poken users by registering you Poken on - a German site that is mapping Poken users :0) I haven't found many UK Poken users yet but it's catching on and is very popular in Europe.

This looks great!! BUT as many have said there's no one I know who has one of these. But if I can introduce them to it then maybe i'lll get one!

I'd love to get one but who does actually have one?

Firebox says: All your friends will after they see how awesome yours is.
This would be good but I do not know a single person that has one so no high-fives :( It would be good if it caught on though... if it was cheaper I could give one to every one I know, then I could do some high fiveing! Maybe the company should give out some free ones first and then there would be some people out there to high five....
