QML/HTML5 Application State Transfer So over the past month I've been working on several modules to provide QtQuick/QML and HTML5 applications with the ability to transfer seamlessly from one device to another. The approach I've taken is to use HTML5's local storage facility, which QtQuick also provides, and simply copy the data-store for any given application from one device to another. This video demonstrates using this technology to transfer the state of a video playing application from one device to another. My TV, powered by my media PC is running a QML application which plays a video from the internet (points if you recognize the content). When the video is paused, the application displays a 2D bar code, or, QR code, which when detected by the software running on another device causes the device to connect to the master (TV) device and clone the applications data-store which contains the applications state. The QR codes are used to notify other devices of an applications' synchronization availability.

Many companies are not creating their own apps, but instead utilizing HTML5, Javascript and CSS3 to aid in the creation of web apps and mobile websites. Reducing the initial investment, companies can get the most out of the money they are spending and release it to the public themselves on their own terms. Who wouldn’t want to save money and produce a more expandable product? When building mobile apps with these technologies you no longer have to duplicate efforts for mobile cross-platform flexibility. With the various devices available and variation of screens, developers must consider all user experiences. Once your idea is in place and you have decided that you want to utilize the mobile platform as your base, you must determine several factors to formulate an effective plan. On average, Americans spend 2.7 hours per day socializing on their mobile device. Defining a Campaign Icons Video

QR-Codes sind beliebt bei Hackern, Geeks, Nerds, sie finden sich auf Visitenkarten, Hinweisschildern, in Zeitschriften und auf Websites.

QR-koodit matikan kirjassa « MoMi – Mobiilisti Mikkelissä Neljännellä luokalla tahkotaan jakolaskuja jakokulmalla tai vastaavin tavoin. Aiheen oppiminen vaatii toisilta enemmän, toisilta vähemmän toistoja. Opettajaltakin se vaatii toistoa ”jaa, kerro, vähennä, pudota, jaa, kerro, vähennä…”. Olemme ennen ipadejakin luokassa harrastaneet screencasteja, eli näytöltä otettujen videoiden käyttämistä opettelussa. Matematiikka on herkullinen aihe lyhyisiin klippeihin, jossa joko ope tai oppilas selittää ja tekee samalla laskua eteenpäin. Tällä kertaa ope teki viiteen seuraavaan matematiikan kappaleeseen lyhyen videoklipin, joka ladattiin youtubeen ja sille haettiin myös QR-koodi. Itseopiskeluunkin toimivaa materiaalia; asian voi etkona opiskella itsenäisesti ja edetä omaan tahtiin tai sitten kerrata useamman kerran, pysäyttää ja tutkia miten asia nyt menikään.. PS.

Keks per Post: Back Dich in´s Nerd-Herz | qkies.de | ChiliConCharme Eigentlich kann man es kaum glauben. Ausgerechnet aus dem Saarland, dem eine ungenügende Internetnutzung mit wenig Hoffnung auf Besserung bescheinigt wurde, kommt eine Produktidee, die einfach sehr erfrischend nerdig ist. Da kennt sich jemand aus, dort oben, der neugierige und kluge Kopf einer Firma, in der sehr traditionellen Lebensmittelbranche. Eigentlich werden in Großmengen Fett, Getreide und Eier produziert und vertrieben und ist daher eher untypisch für innovative Produktideen (behaupte ich jetzt mal, ich kenne aber wirklich sonst niemanden). Und so geschah es, dass in dem kleinen und beschaulichen, saarländischen Dörfchen Eppelborn, in wissenschaftlicher Zusammenarbeit mit dem DFKI (Deutsches Forschungszentrum für künstliche Intelligenz) in Saarbrücken, das Produkt QKies, von der Juchem Gruppe entstand. Qkies sind ganz besondere Kekse. QKies – sag’s mit Keksen from r3 media on Vimeo. Ein Massenprodukt mit individueller Note Guckt auch mal hier rein: QKies Shop

Reader Engagement With Transmedia: How To Use QR Codes I love our little writer’s community, and it’s always a thrill to discover the new and interesting things that people are using to market their books and engage readers. In this post, guest blogger Emily Craven explains how you can use one simple thing – a QR code – to give your readers a more interactive experience. I also have to confess that I had no idea how to use these little squares before I read this post – so thanks Emily! In the modern day it seems like we equate the amount of money we spend to the quality of the experience. Seeing the view from the top of the Eiffel Tower is more prestigious then the view from below. We are the masters of taking advantage of the free, free publicity, social media platforms, free ‘shelf space’, DIY formatting. And yet when it comes to really taking advantage of our media, integrating other forms of storytelling with the written word we pull up short like a kid with a wedgy. The funny thing is, you don’t need money to stand out from the big six …

Shop at a virtual supermarket and more with QR Codes - Social Media QR codes are awesome. I don’t care how geeky that sounds cause it’s true.

Why You Should Start Using QR Codes In Your Classroom I’ll admit QR codes were a bit of a mystery to me until recently. I’ve seen the funny little codes in magazines and advertisements, and I understood that if you had an app on your phone you could scan them and get…somewhere. Beyond that I didn’t give them much thought. However, it seems I’ve been reading about them everywhere recently and they really can have some practical uses – even in the classroom . Getting Started The first thing I did was get a free QR reader app for my iPhone – I got one called Qrafter . You don’t need an app or a mobile device to generate codes – you can make them for free online at many sites. Then I decided that since those apps were free (and easy), I’d put them on my middle school students’ iPads – also easy. How Students Used QR Codes The first thing they did was use the reader on my code I’d put by the door. They had posted these short films on their blogs. Why Should You Try This?
