It is the late flowering of individual autonomy and control… In the ‘I can’ era, people want to be players, not just spectators. They want to be contributors, not just consumers. Technology is enabling these aspirations to be fulfilled… David Milliband 2007 thegrahamthomas@gmail.com

  • 10. VO: One of the best uses of DOOH that can be seen at the moment is in Tokyo, where the exterior of a new retail space has been transformed into one giant QR code. It has huge impact but delivers relevant information at exactly the right place. thegrahamthomas@gmail.com
  • 11. VO: Across Japan, QR codes are transforming interactions between outdoor media platforms and the mobile phone. This is the future of DOOH – as a starter and catalyst for an interaction. thegrahamthomas@gmail.com
