Quick Response Codes

I have yet to experience the power of QR (Quick Response) codes as I still don’t own a smart phone.

Quick Response codes are 2D barcodes first created in Japan to track car components.

Scanning a QR code using a smartphone (plus a QR app) delivers information directly to your phone such as taking you to a companies website or providing you with directions to an event.

Nick Wellington recently posted a question on the Information Graphics and Visualisation Community asking about the imaginitive uses of QR codes by councils.

Nick’s question raised another question in my mind, what is the strangest use of a QR code? A quick search of the internet provided several examples, this was the strangest!
