A reader sent me a link to the “Tokyo Ubiquitous Technology Project,” and it sounds like Ginza is THE place to experience the latest in ID technology right now. Even better, they’re looking for participants!
In the Tokyo Ubiquitous Technology Project in Ginza, you can experience various types of information provision and services utilizing ubiquitous ID technology*, which is unique in the world.
*Ubiquitous ID technology is a cutting-edge technology that links the real world and virtual spaces by having computers automatically recognize unique identifiers attached to each “location” or “physical object”.
In these experiments, you can experience information provision services such as real-time store information and route guidance on the “streets” of Ginza, where an IT infrastructure have been prepared for more enjoyable and comfortable shopping and sightseeing.
