I’m suddenly seeing strange looking barcode like thing-ies every where I go. Being the curious Android phone geek that I am I scan them with my phone’s barcode reader to see what I can see and the results of those scans/searches is usually met with the response of “that’s kind of cool!”
Those “thing-ies” are Quick Response Codes or QR Codes and the potential clever uses for them for businesses seems almost unlimited. A QR Code is a matrix code (or two-dimensional bar code). The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on white background. The information encoded can be text, URL or other data.
