Hyperlinks in Printed Books

Ubimark embeds books with two-dimensional codes that work as hyperlinks when photographed. So far there’s just one book available in English, Around the World in 80 Days, with the bar-like codes. See a YouTube demo below.

  5. I think you’d be interested in reading an article in the latest issue of Wired magazine called “Chaos Theory” by Nicholas Carr. It would be the flip side of the coin to this.

    He argues that “the riot of information from the internet shatters our focus and rewires our brain,” while saying the real cause of this is how we read on the internet via hyperlinks.

    kind of interesting stuff

  7. This is awesome. Hyper links in books will give authors more ways of making money. Advertisers can embed links right in their books. Printed Circuit Board
