The prevalent visions of ambient intelligence emphasise natural interaction between user and functions and services embedded in the environment or available through mobile devices. In these scenarios, the physical and virtual worlds seamlessly gear into each other, making crossing the border between these worlds natural or even invisible to the user. The bottleneck in reaching these scenarios appears in the natural mapping between the physical objects and their virtual counterparts. Physical browsing is a means for mapping this digital information and physical objects in our environment.
