QR Code readers come to us from Japan, where they are very common. QR is short for Quick Response. These QR code readers are used to take a piece of information from a transitory media and put it into your cell phone. They can be seen in a magazine advert, on a billboard, a web page – or even on someone’s t-shirt and much much more.
Once the QR code readers for a business is in your cell phone, it may give you details about that business (allowing users to search for nearby locations) or, for example, details about the person wearing the t-shirt. It may show you a URL on which you can click to see a trailer for a movie, or it may give you a coupon which you can use in a local outlet. The reason why these codes are more useful than a standard barcode is that they can store (and digitally present) much more data, including url links, geo coordinates, and text. The other key feature of QR Codes is that instead of requiring a chunky, hand-held scanner to scan them, they can be simply scanned by many modern cell phones.
The cell phone needs a QR code reader. It takes literally 1 minute for someone with an iPhone or Android phone to find and install the reader.
