Physical Web / Beacons


For this week assignment, we had to design a system that uses beacons.
Together with Kenzo Nakamura we thought on the idea of building a beacon system for products where as a user you can access the manufacturer or user history data of specific products through a physical web link provided by the beacon of the product.

Let's think you come across a ping pong table you really like and you want to know more about the product you just found. With our system, you would have to point the product with your mobile phone and search for the link that the product provides. Through this link, you would be able to access to the product details, specifications, and retailers. Also as a recurrent user of the product, you would be able to save data to that specific products, for instance in the ping pon table, this data could be the history of scores, comments, images and so on.
