You may of noticed that we recently launched our project ‘TalesofThings‘, a site that tags any media to any object using QRcodes or rfid tags. We have just pushed an update that introduces ‘groups’ so all objects of interest can be viewed in one place. As all things urban are close to our heart, one of the first groups is ‘Architecture’ and we would like you to add your own building with a story.
Its simple to do, just sign up, upload a image of your building of choice (under 2mb) and add a story. Your building will then go live and your be able to add it to the architecture group. If you want you can also print out a QRCode that you can stick to the building allowing anyone to scan the code and add to the story/history of the building via the free iPhone/Android apps.
Your building will also be able to ‘Tweet’ everytime it is scanned or a new comment/story added, it will also become part of the ‘World of Things’ map – a place to view all the objects added so far to the site.
We are working on ways to make the objects more location aware and aware of near by objects, it could be interesting over the next few months to see how this develops. We look forward to seeing some of your buildings on the site and will sort out some sort of prize for the best stories…
