Virtual goes tangible
In a DIY twist on augmented reality technology, StickyBits gives people the power to transform their surrounding environment into their own multimedia markup playground.
Think of it as virtual graffiti for the digital age. StickyBits uses vinyl barcode stickers and a mobile scanning app to tag social media content on top of real-world objects. StickyBits compatible smartphones simply scan the barcode to get the digital skinny on all of its appended content (or add their own). The StickyBits mobile scanning app is free and compatible with Android and iPhones, but techie taggers have to shell out $10 for a 20-pack of the vinyl barcodes.
