Another Use For A Physical World Hyperlink


Think of your fingerprint as your own personal barcode, a universal machine-readable identifier.

When you read this story, you will see how there will be other valuable uses for physical world hyperlinks that don't involve a mobile phone.

Sometimes I think people only recognize a physical world hyperlink as a barcode and envision price comparison. It's so much more than that. A physical world hyperlink is using an identifier and connecting to a database through the Internet. The identifier becomes a hyperlink when it connects to the database.

The applications are endless and will have an enormous impact on technology and society.

Imagine a personalised welcome, few queues and fingerprint checks. This could be your bank branch in the future, thanks to cutting-edge technology such as radio frequency identification and biometric scanning.

My company, Visionary Innovations Inc, identifies all physical world hyperlinks and the applications ( for all industries) that can implemented from them.

Thanks for the layup.

Your statement:

" A physical world hyperlink is using an identifier and connecting to a database through the Internet. The identifier becomes a hyperlink when it connects to the database."

says it all. How simple!

There's another variable that will play a key role for this industry.

Do you know what it is?

(drumroll)

no, we don't know. And you know we don't know. And we know you know we don't know. And we know you won't tell us you know, if in fact you do know.

It wouldn't be any fun if I gave it away would it..

Then you wouldn't ponder.
