I’m having so much fun playing with Microsoft Tag. Try it out on your smartphone. (go to http://gettag.mobi) The software drives your phone’s camera to take a quick scan of the tag, and then does something with it, like open a web page, or download a vCard. For example, the colorful tag above, when scanned, will let you save my contact information to your phone.
Next time I print business cards, I’m going to put this on them. I’d love to have it on a T-Shirt, as well.
“Kevin.. this isn’t new.”
I know. It was introduced over a year ago. But I’m just getting around to investigating some cool social-networking uses for it.
(As of this writing, this same tag is my profile photo on Twitter.)
UPDATE: I’ve customized it. Now it has my photo in it.
