We propose the Buddy Bug to fill the gap between mobile personal electronics and friend/date matching services. To accomplish this, the Buddy Bug will allow people to find others with similar interests while they are at a bar, class, lounge or any other place where people gather. Prior knowledge of similar interests will allow users to start a conversation and interact. In addition, if users wish to continue their interaction, they will be able to exchange contact information via the Buddy Bug, overcoming the problem of misplacement and disorganization of contact information. The Buddy Bug will therefore bring the usefulness of friend/date matching services to people while they are moving about their daily lives.
