The technology she is demo-ing is available today with barcode scanning and applications in use for them already. Granted, it’s not as physically engaging as the fun caps, but we’ve made this with fingers, a web-cam and a flash (yes flash) algorithm for our parties.

    I would say for her solution she still needs to grasp the concept of the emerging semantic web for a more robust solution.
