Qr Codes

After seeing the Dopplr boys talk at dConstruct, I’ve been doing some research into QR codes.

Dopplr QRCode at dConstruct

Here’s my QR code for this website:

You can get one for yours if you like at http://qrcode.kaywa.com/

If you’ve got a jailbroken iPhone, you can download a QRcode reader here. It took me a few goes to get it to work from screen, but it does work ๐Ÿ™‚

    The problem with QR Codes
    They’re a brilliant idea, but they’ve not really taken off anywhere outside of Japan.
    In Japan, everything from film posters to DVD boxes have QR Codes on. And, because the mobile phone market is so rigourously standardised in Japan, everyone’s handset has a camera and QR reader built-in.
    So, snap a billboard near where you live and you’ll get a message back with local cinema times. Snap a poster at a bus stop advertising a new sports drink and you might get a discount voucher back.
    It’s a very smart system–just a shame it’s not going to take off (from a consumer point of view) while handset specifications vary so much elsewhere.

    outside japan as well
    hate to point out to your other commentor but Qr codes are used outside of Japan as well.
    Check out whats been happening with Ralph lauren in the USA or Telstra with http://www.qrious.com.au in Australia.
    Feel free to check out http://www.cognation.net/qr for some a 60 second overview about QR codes.
    Cheers,

    You don’t need a jailbroken iPhone to read QR Codes although none of the apps mentioned here perform particularly well! iPhone Users canโ€™t easily read QR and Datamatrix Codes?
