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

The other day, I was speaking to an innovative entrepreneur which had licensed some of that new technologies which allows for short video sequences in actual paper magazines. If you haven't seen them, they are fairly unique 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 technologies to see a demonstration of how it all works. Now then, it appears to me that this technologies may be extremely good for interactive postcards.

Yes, the postcards would cost much more when they had been sold, perhaps $.50 much more, but they would inform a unique story. Particularly if they had been personalized, for instance, if you were 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 whole new kiosk type company, perhaps a franchise, or perhaps some thing sold to specific retailers in tourist areas.

Another believed along this line came to my mind whilst I was brainstorming on this subject would be to send a postcard, a normal postcard which had an iPhone barcode which would allow your relatives that you sent a postcard to, to click on that and go to a web site which would have a fast video of you at that location which represented the postcard. This could be carried out a quantity of ways, and you as the tourist could take the picture on your smart phone, download it to the web site, and push the postcard via to print that barcode onto the back.

After all, a postcard is a fantastic way to say that you've been somewhere, but if your family members members and friends 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 need a future interactive postcard technique, and we require an app for that for all of us high-tech wizards who want to show the world that we have been there, and carried out that. If you'd like to talk about this with our think tank at a a lot higher level, I do hope you will please send me an e-mail.

Yes, this technologies requirements some much more mental horsepower to define and refine the concept, but I'm sure if we develop it, people will purchase it, and the new age of interactive postcards will be ushered in with great delight from travelers each close to and far. Please consider all this and think on it.
