What is the Physical Web?
The Physical Web is a method for tying physical spaces or objects to information on the internet. Someone using a physical web browser is notified of useful content when they enter a physical space with a dedicated beacon, or are near an object broadcasting over Bluetooth.
How does it work?
Google's Physical Web protocol enables you to see a list of URLs being broadcast by objects in the environment around you. Any object or space can be associated with a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon, a low powered, battery efficient device that broadcasts a URL. Physical Web browsers, such as Google Chrome, can scan for and display these URLs.
