Object hyperlinking: Meta-objects meets metaphysics

Object hyperlinking is a neologism that usually refers to extending the Internet to objects and locations in the real world, by attaching object tags with URLs as meta-objects to tangible objects or locations which can then be read by a wireless mobile device and information about objects and locations retrieved and displayed.

Object hyperlinking will make it possible to link comprehensive and editable information to any object or location. The opportunities presented by this are vast, although what has emerged so far is a mixture of social and commercial applications.
