The Future Of Interactive Post Cards - We Require an App for That

The other day, I was talking to an revolutionary entrepreneur which had licensed some of that new technology which allows for short video sequences in actual paper magazines. If you haven't noticed them, they are fairly distinctive and cool. It's as if the paper comes alive and it plays a quick ten second video. If you haven't noticed this, why not go onto YouTube and appear up this new technology to see a demonstration of how it all functions. Now then, it appears to me that this technology may be extremely good for interactive postcards.

Yes, the postcards would price more when they were sold, perhaps $.50 more, but they would inform a distinctive story. Particularly if they were customized, for instance, if you had been on vacation you could take a quick video from your iPhone of you walking across a particular landmark, and then download that file into a postcard printing machine which would print it on the spot. This could be a entire new kiosk type company, maybe a franchise, or perhaps some thing sold to specific retailers in tourist areas.

An additional thought along this line came to my mind whilst I was brainstorming on this subject would be to send a postcard, a regular postcard which had an iPhone barcode which would permit your relatives that you sent a postcard to, to click on that and go to a web site which would have a quick video of you at that place which represented the postcard. This could be carried out a number of methods, and you as the tourist could take the picture on your intelligent telephone, download it to the website, and push the postcard via to print that barcode onto the back.

After all, a postcard is a great way to say that you've been somewhere, but if your family members and buddies can actually see you there enjoying yourselves, then that postcard comes to life, that would make it ten times better. This is why I say we require a future interactive postcard technique, and we need an app for that for all of us higher-tech wizards who want to show the world that we have been there, and done that. If you'd like to talk about this with our think tank at a a lot greater level, I do hope you will please send me an e-mail.

Yes, this technologies needs some much more mental horsepower to define and refine the idea, but I'm certain if we develop it, people will buy it, and the new age of interactive postcards will be ushered in with great delight from travelers both near and far. Please think about all this and think on it.
