If you’re a fan of smartphone apps, then you’re probably familiar with “Bump,” the app that lets you exchange contact information by simply touching your iPhone to someone else’s iPhone, or “bumping.” 

Well, last week, new mobile app software debuted in Spain that blows “Bump” out of the water. Created by a Swedish mobile software firm called The Astonishing Tribe, this software allows a person to just point their phone at someone, and using face detection technology through the phone’s camera, they can instantly obtain all of their social networking information.

So, all you’d have to do is point your phone at a stranger, and then you’d get their Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, atc. all on your phone.

As of right now, you have to opt-in to the software’s database in order for other people to see your information. The Astonishing Tribe has made it this way for privacy issues, obviously. But it sounds like this may become a database everyone will want to join. (MediaBistro)
