Microsoft Tag connects real life with the digital world. Microsoft Tags are small, colorful codes that can be printed, stuck, or displayed just about anywhere. When you snap a Tag with the camera on your internet-enabled phone, additional information or experiences are automatically opened on your phone. There is no fumbling with URLs or texting short codes. Microsoft Tags can make product packages, posters, print-based ads, magazine articles, exhibit signage, billboards, storefronts, business card, or just about anything else, interactive.

Mataki is an open, reconfigurable, flexible, wirelessly-enabled, low-cost GPS tracking technology with wireless communication. Our aim is to keep Mataki low-cost and readily reprogrammable to allow researchers to explore novel tracking approaches by developing their own firmware and applications. We already provide firmware for tracking and base-station applications with a flexible set of parameters that should allow researchers to apply the devices in a number of tracking scenarios without any modifications or new development.
