Online In The Real World

15 Aug

How many times have you been given a flyer with a hyperlink on, gone home and checked it out? I’d say…none? Once at a push; but OKSU is here to change that.

Alex Zhulin of the British Higher School of Art and Design (oddly based in Moscow) has developed this nifty little box that acts as a printer with NFC technology.

What this means is that by using the box, anyone can create their own solid post-it using a screengrab. The chip inserted into this wallet sized note can then be read by touch screen devices or by another user with the box – thus disposing of ugly QR codes and timely hyperlinks.

The easier something is to do, the more likely you are to do it; and a piece of kit like this will encourage user interaction dramatically if used in the right manner. But don’t just take my word for it, check out the video below for a full demonstration and you’ll want an OKSU yourself:
