Simply download the NeoReader to a web-enabled phone, snap a picture of one of the QR codes found in Technology Review with the phone’s camera, and you’ll automatically be transported to the relevant page within Technology Review.

To obtain your free QR-code reader, visit NeoReader.com or download it from the iPhone App Store. The NeoReader is also available for the Blackberry and many other web enabled mobile phones.
