There is new technology that is just starting to show up, it's called QR codes. They have become popular because smartphones are in most everyone's hands. Basically it is a type of bar code that stores information in it so it can be scanned with your smartphone. Once scanned, you get detailed information instantly. Imagine being able to scan a QR code in a magazine and immediately being directed to a website with in depth information related to the ad.
