This paper discusses experiences from implementing a mobile urban Web system using 2D visual barcodes as physical link anchors in the city and utilizing the users’ own mobile phones as interaction devices. We discuss the techniques and technologies used to create the system and the implemented services. Based on public use during the annual Aarhus Festival in September 2008, we evaluate the experiences and based on those we point to challenges and future developments.
