    XPAND Code is a barcode for space that was created during the design process for traffic signs. Nanmoku developed this as a way to expand information on signs while working on designs of Tokyo Metro train information signs for the 2020 Olympic Games. This new barcode following in the footsteps of EAN/UPC Code and QR Code links with your smartphone even from far away distances without ruining the design of the sign or scenery. In addition to locations such as restaurants all over Japan, XPAND Code has started to be utilized in public transportation and public spaces. The Tokyo Metro train information sign design won the IIID Award2017 (http://iiidaward.net/).

    Until now, a compatible app was necessary to read XPAND Code. For simpler usage, a JavaScript version has been developed and service of the beta version of “XPAND.CODES Reader JS” has started.

    XPAND.CODES Reader JS provides information that users need while being easy to use and easy to implement. And with information about URL, sign, and products, users can make better informed decisions.
