This is an interesting way of embedding digital identity into the physical world – narrowing the dichotomy between digital and physical domains. Via BoingBoing.

I’m sure there’s some ways to really integrate this better with net. Perhaps by issuing IP addresses to the nTags so that they can be accessed across the web – all kinds of possibilities open up. It links in nicely with Anne’s take on ubiquitous computing, and more abstractly with this article from the BBC about using physical, real world objects to access semantically-related digital artifacts.
