Tonchidot, the Tokyo-based mobile application company, today announces “domo” at the LAUNCH Conference in San Francisco. With domo, Tonchidot introduces a “pre-social” application that allows users to find people around them they do not yet know, who would be interesting to connect with. Domo essentially brings the usefulness of Facebook profiles into the real world, in real-time, allowing people to open up their data and information to others around them and meet in person.
“Domo connects people! Domo makes love and peace!”
The domo app, which works on Android and iPhone, comes from the crazy Japanese Tonchidot team that launched “Sekai Camera” at TechCrunch50 in 2008. With this next step in “Augmenting” the real world, domo will allow users to see other domo users nearby, get connected to people with common interests, and message or just say “domo”.
Domo will be available for Android and iPhone at the beginning of March, just in time for South By Southwest.
- Tonchidot raised $12M in series B round on the last September from several investors including KDDI, DCM, US-based VC, and Itochu Technology Ventures.
