In the Makers Market:  “P8tch” redirectable QR code patch

Many of you may remember Becky’s post about John Young’s clever p8tch system from a couple years ago. Now we’re excited to announce that John has recently opened a store selling them in the Makers Market.

When you buy a p8tch, you get a velcro-backed waterproof patch, in one of several cool designs, bearing a unique QR code. You also get a unique password that lets you log in to the system’s website at and specify what URL you want your patch to redirect to. You can stick it on anything and direct folks who scan it wherever you want, and when you want to use it for something else, instead of having to generate a whole new code, you can just change the re-direct URL online. A clever product concept and an awesome inexpensive gift.
