I quite like the idea of broadcasting my URL from a friendchip bracelet.

This should be a lot more straightforward than process I linked to before.
Well, this is interesting! It turns out you can turn your laptop into a beacon for broadcasting a URL to devices that support The Physical Web.
An early look at the just-in-time interactions that Scott has been working on:
Nearby works like this. An enabled object broadcasts a short description of itself and a URL to devices nearby listening. Those URLs are grabbed and listed by the app, and tapping on one brings you to the object’s webpage, where you can interact with it—say, tell it to perform a task.
I think this is kind of brilliant.
Spimify your household with these bluetooth location stickers. Now you can google your shoes.
