What do Scanbuy and Nextcode have in common? Why are their applications gaining traction first?
Both Scanbuy and Nextcode ALSO allow consumers to create their own 2d codes rather than rely on the ones advertisers provide.
Some of the most useful Internet applications have come from creative thinking and open code applications.
Scanbuy introduces scanLIFE and their EZcodes.
EZcode is very much similar to any other barcode you will find on books or CDs. It differs from those barcodes in the sense that this falls in the category of 2 dimensional barcodes and is much easier to be decoded by your mobile phone camera.
The mapping of content related to a barcode is done based on the unique ID. You can attach any type of content to it. scanLIFE decodes the EZcode and access the content attached to it.
Penny-size EZcodes can be captured by VGA camera phones, even in low light environments.
