The design of digital memory technologies is arguably one of the grand challenges of Human-Computer Interaction research. Objects and places often mediate access to personal and collective memories and allow recollections of past experiences. Tales of Things is a tagging service that uses two-dimensional barcodes (QR Codes) and RFID tags to enable people to attach stories and memories to any object. The scanning of readable and writable tags allows stories to be replayed and added. Through these interactions provenance information about things is created which provides novel ways for engaging with past experiences. In our research we are exploring the implications of these digital object memories in different contexts.
