As a platform, IM.CITY allows anyone to interact with things or people around the city, based on the context.
Different contexts (restaurants, cars, shops, taxis, hotels, clinics, events etc) will automatically trigger different functionalities of the platform customized for that environment facilitating a seamless interaction.
We call it “The City Interface” as this enables a uniform interaction style for city contexts by developing the new concept of “Internet of Context”.
In order to help us with the implementation of this new concept and the development of this platform, we created the IM.DIRECT, an “interaction language” to be used for contextual interactions.
An important detail about IM.CITY is that it can be accessed with any communication tool you choose: app, web, im, sms, wearables or whatever Elon Musk will come up with to link to our brains.
With IM.CITY you can give a rating to any place (ex. club, shop, event) by simply sending an instant message or a sms. Same procedure if you like to alert the driver of the car parked on your own spot. Same if you like to call ta waiter in a restaurant.
This is the new type of Internet, The Internet of Context (IoCo) which is a combination of all the existing Internet types: The Web, The Physical Web, Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Communication (IoC), Internet of Me (IoM).
The IM.CITY will be available in selected cities soon with a number of interactions (all universal actions and 2 contextual actions for cars and restaurants)
