This is just a little bit mind-blowing: An award nominated design prototype using physical tags and tools to send things seamlessly to Slack using Wesley: the Augmented Whiteboard, by Alfred Clatworthy Holmen.

This could be brilliant: yet another way of threading real life meetings and project work into the communal knowledge bank and archives of Slack.
