printable hyperlinks


Putting the Ink in Link

In my web 2.0 talk, I discussed printable hyperlinks and the active print project. The prototype phone client 'Glass' that decodes QR and datamatrix codes is available as a download for series 60 cameraphones. You can also generate your own codes.

This project and related others point to a world where arbitrary physical objects can be linked to web services, which can be launched with the click of a mobile phone. Of course, this is already a big deal in Japan. There's even a QR code blog ;-) Apparently Korea has a similar ColorCode as well. It's just amazing how far behind the US is falling in mobility...
