Atmospheir presented next and described their product as a “social address book” where its users are required to know the unique ID of other users to find each other. Atmospheir strives to modernize the address book by connecting its users quickly and efficiently while also reflecting the fundamental nature of human relationships: known identities, mutual trust, controlled levels of intimacy, and boundaries of shared information.
