ShotCode Invasion


You may have recognized them already – and if not, you will do it in the near future, be sure: ShotCodes. A circular barcode, a sequence of black and white blocks, which represents an url, that leads for example to a products website or a point of sale or to your homepage or to whatever. The codes are designed to be read with a regular camera, including those found on mobile phones or webcams. You only need to download a special ShotCode software on your cameraphone. This software – the ShotCode reader – understands the codes and connects the mobile phone to the location in one click – or better: in one snapshot…
So: get the software on your phone and when you see a ShotCode: scan it!! ( = take a picture) You’ll be surprised, where your browser is gonna connect you to.
Yesterday I found a code in Tucholskystrasse, between Tor and Linienstrasse. You found some, too?
