On QR Codes and Laser Tag

Posted: 31 December, 2008 in Blogging by GWT

So, I was browsing the internet when I discovered this thing:

Do you know what this is? Well, try holding your Cellphone camera up to it. It might not work without special software, but try it anyway. Did anything happen?

Well, regardless if it triggers anything or not, I”m sure you’ve seen these, be it in a magazine or on the internet or maybe on a wall or perhaps in a store. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a QR Code.

What is a QR Code? Its a special bar code that holds information, be it a website, text message, a note, or even a phone number. Basically, by scanning it with your cellphone camera — or maybe even your computer’s camera — you can get information instantly.

Some cellphones can do it right away. Others can do it after installing a program or two. Either way, its an amazing way to send and recieve information.

It also makes for a great game of laser tag.
