I am terrible at remembering names, this is down to mental lazyness and there is no excuse. However sometimes technology makes up for our shortcomings which is why I came up with this GPS name awareness unit.

I wish I had something like that. All I can do in situations like that is ask something like “What did you say you preferred to be called?” in the hope that they have a nickname or that their name could have one.

but what if they never said what they prefered to be called?

I need this. A lot of people need this.

You are a clever man Dominic.

Brilliant idea- My wife usually performs this function for me! : )

What’s sad is that your illustration looks like a general snapshot of our world as it exists currently. Glued to incredible (and incredibly distracting) technology, all wonderfully designed to feel perfect in our hands. Terribly addicting.

I remember once being in that situations and I asked “So how do you spell your name?” in the hope that they have a name that could be spelt differently to then be told “The only it can be spelt” … it went downhill much quicker at that point!
