Scientist Poken Featured in Business Article

A recent article from the Wilmington News Journal features the work of Analtech’s Micky Jones – designer of the “Scientist” Poken.

Pokens, which come in a variety of character designs with outstretched palms, exchange an encrypted code when the palms touch. The platform plugs into your computer’s USB port to upload contact information including e-mails, photos, phone numbers and social-networking accounts.

Information is updated to all contacts as changes such as new phone numbers or job addresses are made on the Poken account online.
