QR codes in Wales make mobile marketing history

The Welsh city of Monmouth is the first city in the world to use barcodes to become a Wikipedia town.

The town of Monmouth in Wales is already known for its rich history, dating back to 1067, but now it is using some of the latest technology, in the form of QR codes, to become the first Wikipedia town anywhere on the globe.

Residents and tourists now have access to stickers and ceramic plaques that can be scanned with smartphones.

When the barcodes are scanned, they redirect the mobile device user to a Wikipedia page that will provide that individual with far more information and statistics about the site or the town than could be displayed on a typical sign.
