SPRINGWISE: Take A Photo Of A Shirt, Get Wearer’s Contact Details
Capturio lets users link their contact information with their favorite t-shirt, which then functions like a QR code.
It’s become increasingly common for everyday objects such as t-shirts to include a QR code that links to online content. French Capturio, however, lets users link their contact information with any favorite t-shirt — no code required.
How it works? Users of the free service simply take a picture of the t-shirt they have in mind and email it along with their contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, anytime someone sees the user in that shirt, they can snap a photo of it and email it to email@example.com. In return, they get the wearer’s contact details emailed back to them. Capturio works on mobile platforms including iPhone, Android and Blackberry.
Currently, there’s a limit of one t-shirt per user, but that’s due to increase soon. Also on the way are a web version, mobile apps and integration with social websites like Facebook and Twitter. For the long run, Capturio bills itself as a service that can “turn anything into a business card.” Tech-savvy entrepreneurs: one to get involved in?
