The TOTeM project is funded through a £1.39 million research grant from the EPSRC to explore social memory in the emerging culture of the Internet of Things. This term is used to describe the increasingly popular use of tagging technologies to track physical objects in the real world.

    I’m a hobby sailor (ocean racing) and computer person (graphics, website etc.) It is getting harder to follow a lot of this stuff. Is there a place to chat about ToT and get the answers to simple naive questions? For example I have not yet figured out how to enlarge the QRcode. I’d like a big one to post on my boat (the tagged object)

    Hi Bill

    Thanks for getting in touch you can post comments here, or if you have technical questions you can email support@talesofthings.com and they will be happy to help with any questions. With regards to enlarging the QR code, at the moment they are alll a standard size which is what you will have when you go to print out code. This produces a PDF document of your code however which you can then open in Photoshop and enlarge the code that way. Let me know if you need more info.
