Physical Web

The Physical Web is an open approach to enable quick and seamless interactions with physical objects and locations.

Hyper-local access to anything from your phone.

It enables you to see a list of URLs being broadcast by objects in the environment around you. Any object can be embedded with a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon, which is a low powered, battery efficient device that broadcasts content over Bluetooth.


The Physical Web Association is a non-profit organisation founded to steward the future of the Physical Web. https://phwa.io
