A QR Code is a matrix code or two-dimensional bar code created by Japanese corporation Denso-Wave in 1994. The "QR" is derived from "Quick Response", as the creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.
The possibilities of using QR Codes are endless: QR Codes could accompany newspaper and magazine ads so that people could scan the code with thier mobile phones and get additional information and videos of the product via their phones. The QR Codes could also be displayed on store shelves so that customers could use their mobile phones to find more information about the product. Billboards, Posters … the endless are possibilities 🙂
I decided to experiment with QR Codes and to do this I first installed a QR Code Reading Software onto my phone. I downloaded the software from : QuickMark QR Code Reader. This is a free QR Code Reader and worked great on my Cingular 8525.
I then proceeded to generate a QR Code for my Blog via QR Code Generator. Once I did this I got a QR code for my blog:
To test this I fired up the QR Code Reader on my Mobile Phone and took a picture of the generated QR Code (above) and it worked beautifully. I would love to add this to my business card.
