Taking online social networking into the real world, magnetU bridges the online and the physical.
Connecting users with people they like, and with the businesses they frequent, magnetU is the world's first wearable social accessory that lets people wear their social desires, allowing imme-
diate social gratification anywhere, anytime.
magnetU creates dynamic social networks of proximity between people in the real world. Through a fun concept of "Attractive" - "Hot" - "Red Hot" social match messages, or simply by "cheers" your magnetU with others, magnetU connects users with mutually matched social desires when they are in the same place or in a network of proximity of potentially hundreds of meters. It's fun and valuable - you can be in the magnetU network whether you are indoor or outdoor, it can work anywhere. magnetU also bridges loyalty programs and physical advertising with online social networking. There's a whole range of apps for your social desires: socializing, social business card exchange, dating, business matches - and more to come.
magnetU brings together social networking, mobile telephony and proximity technology, creating the first ever, patent-pending, dynamic mobile network of proximity. magnetU builds dynamic mobile human networks with the people around you - as they walk or stand, anywhere - indoor or outdoor, without even knowing of your actual location! The magnetU network grows organically as users go about their daily activities. People are moving, running, walking and magnetU uses this mobile dynamic environment like they are all connected through a "network cable".

magnetU co-founder Yaron Moradi knew it was time to turn his magnetU dream into a reality, and called Dr. Pinchas Ziv, who took up the challenge and became the company co-founder. Both had known each other for years, as pioneers in the consumer products wireless market, have been based in the same office. Working from the basement in Yaron's house, they began building their cross-disciplinary team, and came up with the first version of magnetU in May 2010.
We are a small all-star group, plus a network of partners, located in the US, Europe, Israel and Asia.
We're funded by a handful of angel investors, using our funds in a smart, optimized way.
I have a cool idea for magnetU.
Is there a way to build this into
It's gonna be much easier than any API you've seen before. For magnetU, every profile that users wear is actually an application. For example, a profile form that is focused on socializing is used for social applications, a business matches profile is used by business people, and so on. We are currently working on opening the magnetU website to allow you to develop new profiles, quickly and easily. You won't need to actually develop an application, but a profile form. You can develop different types of profiles, which are themselves applications. The profiles can then be put on our profile appications store, and downloaded by magnetU users. We've been getting lots of requests from developers who want to be the first to create new application profiles.
