O-Link

O-Link is a communication tool developed by NTT Comware in collaboration with the
Tangible Media group. O-Link allows users to link video clips to an object intuitively, as if sealing wonderful memories of a trip in a souvenir. It also has an object-recognition feature that loads the video clips tagged with the object and plays them back automatically, just by putting the object in front of the monitor. NTT Comware aims to provide novel services based on O-Link that anyone can use—regardless of his or her
computer literacy—such as intergenerational communication tools, video manual services directly equipped with products, or educational infrastructures for the exchange of student work and opinion.
