Microsoft Tag | Bricoleur Systems

Your first time here? Welcome, I'm glad you've dropped in.... David Soul (aka Bricoleur)


Using Microsoft Tag (currently in beta) you can make almost anything you want  interactive.  Link real life with the digital world, by adding a  tag to product packaging, print-based media, signage, outdoor advertisements, business cards, storefront signage , exhibit, video or wherever else you can imagine using a  link to the virtual world from a physical space.

The tag above can be snapped by a  phone camera (a free iPhone app is already available) and it will provide automatic opening of a browser and navigation to  the home page of this website for example.  I’m thinking of virtual supplements to sports museum displays as a potential use.
