    Regarding the ability to read Microsoft Tags displayed in a touch screen -- yes! You should be able to perform similar actions on any Windows machine. All you have to do is generate a unique tag for the content you want to link to it (Check the Microsoft Tag API here), and then scan the tag on your smartphone of choice. (tag reader available for most phones out there).
