QR Code Killer? Touchcode Opens Content by Tapping Paper to Screen
Dubbed Touchcode, the new technology works by embedding a thin layer of capacitive material in printed items like business cards, tickets, magazine pages, or product packaging. When you hold the paper to a capacitive touchscreen, it acts like a set of invisible fingers tapping out a complex code that’s interpreted by a Touchcode-enabled app or website.
To read the codes on a device, users will need to launch an app or site that’s capable of reading Touchcode. Rather than creating a universal Touchcode app, Printechnologics has an SDK that companies can use to build the functionality into their own apps.
