Switzerland 2007 Stamp Link to the Internet with Bee Tagg 2D Code  

Issue date 31 October 2007

Swiss Post has issued the world's first stamp with an integrated BeeTagg, combining a conventional stamp with ultra-modern technology. Swiss Post's partner in this first tagging venture is Schweiz Tourismus or Swiss Tourism, which is using the stamp and integrated BeeTagg as part of its winter advertising campaign. The mobile tagging solutions have been developed by Swiss Post subsidiary yellowworld AG.

The BeeTagg is a two-dimensional code that looks like a honeycomb and functions in a similar way to a bar code. The user simply installs the free BeeTagg reader, then scans the tag incorporated into the Swiss Post stamp with the camera on their mobile phone. The reader recognizes the tag and connects the phone to a predefined web page.
