App Lets You Pin Virtual Post-It Notes to a Real Wall [VIDEO]
Post-It notes long ago made the transition from the real world to your computer screen, but thanks to a new app, they’re going virtual as well.
3M worked with augmented reality developer Metaio on the new app, which lets you pin a virtual Post-It to a real wall. As the video above shows, you can use an iPad to take a picture of yourself with a speech bubble outlining your message. Then, you can put that message on a wall with others.

Bloggers: TSA "Strongly Cautions" Against Writing About Security Loophole
