The anticipated arrival of the first Dinosaur Island App ‘Meteors’ is upon us.
(Or more correctly as OnTheWight commentator ‘Darcy’ revealed – Meteorite – as they change from being called Meteor when they land on the earth.)
Long-time friend of OnTheWight, Bruce Steers, shared with us some photos of it he’d taken at Hanover Point at Compton Bay.
Previously all that had been seen was a computer-generated mock up of them.
The actual version looks pretty similar, with the exception of the top section which was originally showed a QR code, has been increased in size, allowing people using it to be further away from it.
QR codes not used
The design has moved away from using the standard of QR codes – the black and white square block bar code – and opted to create their own version that sits at the top section of the ‘meteorite’.
These are the ‘triggers’ that will work with the dinosaur mobile phone app that will make the dinosaurs ‘appear’.

Update 18.Jun.13: Having visited all of the Meteorites, it’s now clear QR codes won’t be used, but a new version of coding has been invested for this. Copy changed to reflect this.
