StreetPass and SpotPass Mode:

This is one of the most interesting features of the recently revealed Nintendo 3DS hardware specs. Background connectivity system that trademarks suggested was named “CrossPass“, which can automatically seek and connect to wireless network nodes such as Wi-Fi hotspots, sending and downloading information in the background while in sleep mode or while playing a game.

StreetPass Mode can automatically discover other 3DS units within range, establish a connection, and exchange content for mutually-played games, all transparently and without requiring any user input, even when the console is dormant. In some games, if the user passes someone with the same software, he has a battle to collect trophies from the other player.
