World's First Wikipedia Town To Launch In Wales

So the idea is that people will walk around this town scanning barcodes that link back to Wikipedia articles about the town? Anyone like this idea?

Wikimedia UK آ—which works to support, develop and promote Wikimedia Foundation projects such as Wikipedia آ— says hundreds of articles about the life and history of the town will be available online in more than 26 languages, from Hindi to Hungarian. Around 1,000 different bar codes plaques and stickers now decorate its schools, museums, historical sites and even pubs.
