N Building Tokyo: QR Code & Live Twitter Feed via Augmented Reality App

This building in the Tachikawa district of Tokyo has been transformed into a giant QR code which allows users to access dynamic information, such as Twitter feeds, store information, etc. live via an augmented reality app for the iPhone.

Qosmo Inc. CEO Nao Tokui who developed the application writes. "We envision a cityscape unhindered by ubiquitous signage and also an improvement to the quality and accuracy of the information itself,". "Our goal is to provide an incentive to visit the space and a virtual connection to space without necessarily being present."
