Register to Vote Just by Scanning This T-Shirt With Your Phone - Ecouterre (blog)
draws closer, citizen politicos will be hitting the streets in T-shirts powered by Quick Response (QR) codes . Get close enough to snap the code with your smartphone and you’ll get instant access to a mobile page where you can watch videos about the election, engage with social media, and register to vote . A team effort by Rock the Vote , PromoJam , Junk Food Clothing , and Threads for Thought , the “Scan to Vote” initiative debuted earlier this month at the Warby Parker Citizen’s Circus during the SXSW music festival in Austin, TX. Made from 100 percent organic cotton, the shirts are designed to mobilize, educate, and inspire American youths through a medium they use the most: their smartphones.
