Looks like fun, thought I'd share
Found it from a guy on Buzz and one of the ideas for using it was on business cards....what are some of your thoughts?
Alternatively, you can choose any product bar code and "attach" something to it.
Seems like this has a lot of potential....
So like... if I am at the store and scan a can of green beans and someone else with this app had previously scanned green beans and attached a picture of their cat to it, I'd see the picture of the cat? If so... bizarrely cool (but with some disturbing potential for abuse)
And, of course, once it catches on, teenagers will find all sort of inventive pictures to attach to bar codes....
I think one of the discussions I saw brought up the question of what sort of control do product manufacturers have over their bar codes...is it their property, do they have the right to dictate what can and cannot be "attached"? While I agree there's certainly the room for abuse, I would also be interested in fair and honest reviews of a product (I mean, really, have you *tasted* PBR?)....
EDIT: Out of curiousity, I just tried scanning OpalCat's QR code above...it works like a champ! (Don't worry, I didn't add anything, but thought it was interesting to note ).
