Mobi-tickets for concerts

A new system allowing fans to get into pop concerts using their mobile phones is being introduced at Glasgow's SECC, per an article in Evening Times.

"It works by sending a unique barcoded ticket - called a mobi-ticket - to handsets. Tickets can even be bought from a mobile phone and delivered instantly.

On the night of the concert, the code is checked at the venue simply by waving the phone's display over a supermarket-style scanner. The ticket barcode can be forwarded to other mobiles but only one person can use the code to gain entry to an event".
