it was “so hard” for me – never heard of ‘quick response’/matrix barcodes
(might have guessed that the images are an identifying code)
1) how could someone use a search engine to find the name of a category of images without knowing what to call them? – only by googling something (for the above example) like ‘square array of rectangles in two colors’ (which I wasn’t patient enough to pursue)?
I mean to ask whether there’s an image search engine, like a face-recognition or fingerprint-matching program, only more generalized
2) are there three-dimensional matrices used to label things?
This is so cool because I have always been frustrated by my inability to interface fully with advertising. Why can’t I follow up on an ad, learn more, engage with the product, etc.? I don’t want the experience to end with simply viewing the advertisement– I want the advertisement to be the start of my journey into complete product immersion.
I’m working on a literary project involving these too – though as a publisher not a writer for the moment. But also, it’s the same kind of technology (not exactly, but uses the same principles) that drives this: http://betweenpageandscreen.com/
