QR Codes

What is a QR Code?

A QR or Quick Response code is a sophisticated barcode that can be used in conjunction with scanners such as those found on Android and iPhones to deliver information about the underlying product or service to the user. A typical use would be to trigger the loading of a web page on a smart phone as follows:

 

  1. Scan QR Code
  2. Browser opens automatically
  3. URL decrypted from QR Code and entered automatically into browser.
  4. Web page opens

To try one out, get a scanner and try scanning this one:
