In my new book, I Live in the Future & Here’s How It Works, you will find a series of little black and white squares called a QR code. Using one of a free applications on your mobile phone you can access additional content from the book.
To get a free code reader, for iPhone, Android, Palm or Blackberry, either search in your smartphone app store for “ScanLife”, or go to the following URL on your mobile phone: http://j.mp/BiltonCode
Once you download the appropriate app, fire it up and you will see it access the camera on your phone, almost as if it’s taking a picture. Simply point the camera over the corresponding QR code in the book (hold it a couple of inches away) and you will be taken to a Web page with links, videos and the ability to comment on each chapter.
You don’t need to use the codes to access the additional content in the book, but it makes it easier than typing the URL of each chapter into your mobile phone. For those of you who would like to skip this process, simply point your browser to http://nickbilton.com/future/toc.
