With the ability to scan and transfer data from skin to skin, the QR code embedded Yumskins provide a new way for users to interact with each other.
The self-adhesive, splash-shielded skins come in silver, holographic and gold. Users can choose or make own designs online, preview skins in Augmented reality (AR), embed QR codes into designs and finally print them on any inkjet printer. The QR codes can store URLs, social media information, vCards or plain text. A QR and AR recognition technology based audio, video and game exchange service is to follow in short.
Yumskins turn everyoneʼs phone into a canvas and everybody into an artist. With only few mouse clicks users can publish photos, illustrations, designs and ideas to share and print on printable skins. On top of a global online exhibition hall, publishers gain $1.- each time their designs are printed by another user.

”I think the reason why QR codes have never taken off big time is because the user was always put in a ʼconsumingʻ role. Itʼs all more or less about advertising and informing. I strongly believe this will change once we give people the ability to use this technology to interact with others in a smart way. Itʼs like saying ʼPower to the Peopleʻ. This is consistent with the way we build our company – crowd sourcing is a big issue at SkinStar. Gregor Moss, SkinStars CEO and skin business veteran.
