Stamford, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom, 2011/05/19 - ScanMe is an application that creates a unique, permanent, QR barcode for a user through their Facebook account. This barcode can then be displayed anywhere, in the real world as well as the virtual world, to create and enhance connections.
A ScanMe barcode can link to any social media profile, website or E: address; with the ability to change the information that is displayed with just a few clicks on the control panel from a Smart phone.
ScanMe goes further than this, however, also incorporating an individuals’ QR barcode in to fashionable clothing items in a range they are dubbing “Interactive Fashion”. With world-renowned artists on board, such as the Ray Ban and Wired magazine designer Matt W.Moore, the ScanMe t-shirt range is bringing QR Codes to a whole new audience.
John Harrison, Founder and Director of ScanMe, says,“ScanMe gives its users a way to connect their social online world with the world they walk around in everyday. Just by wearing a t-shirt, and choosing what people see when their barcode is scanned, people open up a whole new world of interaction and connection with those around them.”
ScanMe (scanme.com) makes making connections easier than ever, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for both work and play.
