Back to May 2013

Very nice report. Reminded me that the first installation of QRpedia was in a Natural History part of Derby Museum due to Nick Moyes who was the curator there. The Swiss seem to have siezed the baton! This is the third QRpedia initiative I have heard about. So ask if you need any help. Have you thought about using NFC chips? They are much easier for users to use than QR codes as they do not need to load an app and it would also solve the lighting problems. You do have to have a pretty fancy phone so you can only use this in tandem with QR codes, but you can also offer visitors the possibility of borrowing a tablet which would cost less than 200 Euros. --Victuallers (talk) 08:15, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
