Fluid Time

While the cell phone’s most overlooked killer app has been the little time display on the top corner of your screen (Think of all the people you know who don’t use their watch anymore to tell the time), its set to make another leap with applications like Fluid Time.

Fluid Time allows people to use their cell phone to negotiate their time, like for example, deciding how to share a washer or getting to a bus stop on time.

The system is still in the development phase with the current prototype exploring how the value of location based services can be increased when they are connected to people and information.

We think this is what the Microsoft wristwatch should’ve been, not the wrist ticker tape that it is.
