Got an iPhone or Android device? Tag your world with Stickybits! Each booth at this year’s Boulder Jewish Festival will have unique “Stickybits” barcode. Download the free Stickybits app ahead of time, then scan away!
When you scan a barcode, the app prompts you to attach a “bit” – a photo of something at the booth, a music video, a text comment or a song. Each scan can be seen in the live stream of “scans” and is mapped on a Google map. Want to remember which organization had a great upcoming program? Scan their bar code and attach a message. Can’t believe how good the food is? Scan the code and attach a photo. Love the music on the main stage? Scan the code and attach a video clip. See an amazing piece of artwork that you know a friend would adore? Scan the code and share with a friend.
When you scan a code, you can also see which other users have scanned that code and what they have attached. You might even see a discount code or coupon. And people who scan after you will see what you attached. Get it?
As if that weren’t nifty and cool enough, you can also see the locations of the scans and a running list of popular scans. You might see a lot of activity at a particular booth, and the location ID will enable you to find it. You can zoom in on the map, down to the separate blocks of Pearl Street and the courthouse lawn (it even gives you latitude and longitude).
