QR Codes

April 30th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

A QR Code is a 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. QR Codes can be used to encode anything from text information, to geo locations and vCards.


Because QR Codes have a high data loss tollerance (upto 30%) some nifty things can be done with them, like the following example. The bbc created a QR Code with a link to their website. Because QR Codes can have a high fault tollerance they were able to distort the image into showing the BBC logo in the middle of the code, without make it unreadable.
