Mobile phones which tells you where your friends are
 
I heard about the phones that can tell you where your friends are. And also predicts rain. Anyone have any definite idea about such phones.

What if cell phones could predict rains and where your friends are? Well, lets cut out the 'What ifs', these dreams are finally being made to reality by Murray Smith - the inventor of the prototype 'magic wand' phones.

Users will have to simple wave the phone and get instant information about the happenings of the world around them.

The idea behind making such a cell phone is to link people on to the world wide web from the real world, so that they can easily locate their friends through social networking sites and point their phones towards buildings, bus stops etc and find out the right information about where they are.

A team of Scottish scientists has developed mobile phones that can tell you where your friends are or can warn you if it is going to rain.

Professor Roderick Murray-Smith of the University of Glasgow is working for Nokia on the point-and-find software.

Murray-Smith has already created prototypes of the 'magic wand' phones, and he predicts they will be on the shelves by end of this year.

As far as the using the new technology is concerned, users will simply have to wave the mobile phone in the air to get information about the world around them, as the next generation of phones adopt the technology of the Nintendo Wii to make them easier to use than ever

the basic technology is already in iPhones and some Nokia handsets, Murray-Smith is developing a host of applications to help people access information from the World Wide Web in the real world.
