I've blogged before about innovation and cool inventions. So it's nice to have a cool, Irish innovation to write about for a change. It's called TICode and it fuses the web, networks and Web 2.0 in one of the smartest formats I've seen in a while.
The way I see it, TICodes will enable web and ultimately mobile users to a) never be lost again and b) never have to give directions again. Kind of handy that. But the really interesting stuff is the range of applications that I can't foresee - but others will. Just look at some of the applications from around the world that are using the power of GPS, mobiles and detailed mapping information to do things such as real world gaming; or even calculating the walkscore for how far it is to walk to different amenities from a house or apartment you are thinking of buying or renting.
The two dimensional world of the screen you are looking at is about to go 3D, thanks to your mobile phone and innovations such as TICode. Another example of how Ireland can use our natural born networking skills to seize the opportunities of Web 2.0 and beyond.
Here's my TICode, by the way. What's yours?
