Nokia Point and Find

This future is inevitable. Start preparing now!

Today: Not having a website for your business is unthinkable.
Future: Not having your posters and other graphic promotional material registered so that they can be auto-recognized will be unthinkable.

The URL will disappear from business cards. Your company logo will act as link.

The URL field in mobile web browsers will have a camera icon.

You won't have to ask your new friends for their phone number. Just permission to take a photo of their face. Algorithms will do the rest. GPS coordinates, together with shared contacts in your social networks will give face recognition a leg up.
