This is a way of demonstrating innovation with mobile technologies
Have a look at Microsoft tag www.microsoft.com/tag
You can download the correct software for you mobile phone (free) if you have a web enabled phone – set your mobile browser to http://gettag.mobi and download the software onto your phone
When you open the software it will initialise your phones camera, so point the camera at the tag at http://twitpic.com/2t3u7
When the camera has focussed it will open your web browser on the my computer my way site
So you can take the image – save and download it and include it on posters, leaflets, information packs etc any user with a mobile phone then has instant access to our website from the leaflet
Its an interesting technology to explore
Ive created a tag for GATE as well – but we could create one for any resource and allow partners to copy it and make it available more widely
We know for instance that in some parts of the world the major route to access to information is mobile phones - so here is one way to integrate that
Interested in your thoughts
