So I was thinking lately playing the Nintendo 3ds Nintendo has a successful way to interact with walking bye or nearby, devices called a street pass. They also had a service called Nintendo zone where you could get cool prizes and things in certain locations/tourism areas like what Pokemon go does with Pokestops now. So I am gonna break my proposal into two parts…
So I think if byte had a StreetPass like a feature where you could interact with nearby creators in the way street pass did it. It would be a real big hit. You can even do cool things with stars this way or even collabs/split-screen bytes! The only problem with this would be data collection and creeps doing bad things with it but StreetPass doesn’t collect your data nor does it give away the location or allow people to access your location only when you go nearby someone like NFC in a way.
A Spot pass kind of feature could be where people experience new content early or get more stars and can participate in events like pokemon go does. This could only be helpful for those looking to get more stars or those participating in community events and I could even see a feature like this benefiting spotlight and the limited time events category too.
So that’s my take I would really like to see something similar or close to these two features as it would get creators out and active and more together when this whole virus thing is over. Obviously these features wouldn’t work in a time like now but I hope it is something to keep in mind for after!
