Using Spherials greatly appeals to the expat within me. I can pick a place in which I want to hang out and will hopefully find like-minded people present, also interested in making friends or creating some kind of experience. Whilst it’s not exactly natural to pre-screen for potential friends, the hyper-specific context of a Spherials rendezvous does help to combat our generation-wide social anxieties; chances are you will have something in common with your fellow Spherial dwellers.
A potential problem is that the app is remarkably user dependent. People will have to be willing to reengage with a society in which strangers are quite disconnected from each other, so I assume in the case of random Spherials, ice-breaking skills will have to be brushed up a little.
So, are people ready to leave behind the comfort of communication via screens? We hope so. Therefore, we suggest you grab your Smartphone, download the free app (there are some hotspot suggestions to get you started) and get on the move.
