Yeah it’s in my wrist band! And it’s true, in NY City, to ask for someone’s number is no longer a big deal or an obsolete style. Skanz, a New York-based company has recently launched QR Code Wrist Band that allows users to share stored digital information — from email, phone number to Facebook and Twitter accounts, and even photos, mp3, and blogs. There’s no need for conventional conversation just to ask for personal information.
This wrist band contains a printed QR (quick response) code which is recognized by a program, such as a smartphone application and is linked to start an action. When an image of a QR code is captured by a quick-response scanner or mobile phone camera,
it opens a webpage containing the user’s information. That simple!
Through Skanz.com, you can create your profile and add which information you would like to share with people via the QR code. The Skanz site keeps your entire digital life. One good thing is that these QR Codes Wrist Bands come in different colors which the company hopes to become a fashion thingy. Moreso, Skanz aims to launch QR Codes on smartphone covers for those who don’t want to wear the bands yet can still exchange digital information and get the same benefit.
There is an iPhone QR Code reader app featured in Taragis.Com (visit here)
