We can't put Mytago on the physical world connection list yet. They offer the ability to scan a 2d code with a camera phone, but they dont follow through on the direct connection part.
I will give them an "A" for effort though. They are showing how easy physical world hyperlinks can be created and they are allowing consumers to decide what they want to connect in the physical world.
They really just offer 2d code bookmarks.
I expect more of these "create and scan your own code" services to be popping up, but they will need to offer a direct connection function. Mytago is just CueCat with a camera phone.
Nokia phones come with 2d code readers preinstalled, and then you see how a mobile marketing powerhouse gets built.
Mytago tags are a new version of the common barcodes. Instead of the barcode scanner, you scan tags by taking a snapshot with your phone camera and later get the details of the tag on your PC.
You scan it by taking a snapshot with your mobile phone camera as a bookmark for the event. Later at home, you transfer the tag to your laptop and upload it to mytago.com and get all the details about the event.
That seems like a lot of work doesn't it?
The flowchart of how it works is just confusing
Nice find teach42.com
