The Future

So we bought this fairly difficult to assemble product the other day, and on the package was a big QR Code. I scanned the code with my phone, and Android detected a link to a YouTube video and offered a few choices for playing it. One of those was “Play on XBMC”, thanks to the XBMC remote app (XBMC is the software that runs on our living room HTPC).

Instantly, assembly instructions a crappy promotional video started playing on the TV. This is the future? (A proper how to video would have made this story so much better!)
