Tokyo gets QR coded
Tokyo Metropolitan Government today launched a mobile service by which citizens and visitors to Tokyo can use their QR code-enabled phone to access more information on a whole variety of things such as landmarks, roads, plants, zoo animals and construction works.
By capturing a QR code on a plant, phone owners are redirected to detailed information about the plant. QR codes on notices for roadworks provide update information and contact details for companies involved.
