Semapedia

While looking for images of New York buildings on Flickr, I stumbled across these images.

New York Times Building 

East Village 

Akaalias is taking hundreds of photos of QR Codes that are involved in a project called “Semapedia”.

In the same way you can give someone a link online (in a website, blog or email), Semapedia is creating “physical hyperlinks”, to link real world things to online locations.
Using the QR Codes shown in the above photos will lead the user to the appropriate Wikipedia page, so you can look at the New York Times building while accessing information about it.

The project is open to anyone to add to, simply by making a QR Code, and placing it in the real world.
Hover your mouse over or click on the images above to see what the QR code user is directed to.

Click here for the Semapedia home page, and here to see the Semapedia project on a Google Maps/Flickr mashup.
