Augme.com is now selling T-shirts that can be scanned by a mobile phone. When the phone reads the T-shirt, it will visit the website of the person wearing it.
The T-shirts feature a datamatrix barcode, known as a “tag”. Using a mobile phone camera, a person may take a picture of the tag, and software on the mobile phone can read it. The mobile phone then launches a browser and visits the website of the wearer.
The person wearing the T-shirt can choose any website, social networking page, photo, video or music to link the tag to. This includes the ever-popular Facebook and Myspace websites, as well as Augme’s own profiles which are designed with mobile-viewing in mind.
Augme.com allows users to create and manage phone-readable tags. Visitors to the site may create tags for any purpose and use them as they see fit. Augme, Inc is dedicated to linking information on the internet to physical objects. The Augme website is at http://www.augme.com for computers and http://m.augme.com/ for mobile phones.
T-shirts are available from http://stores.augme.com/ and http://www.extendedidentity.com
