Jason Smith, who is one of the owners of Club Soda, explains QR codes at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. The QR codes lead to biographical information on the artist, with a photo of the artist and other pieces of their work. The additional information about the artist helps provide context to the artwork, said curator Sarah Aubrey.
QR codes were first created by Toyota to track vehicles in manufacturing, offering a small barcode that can be quickly decoded. That was 1994, and now, almost 20 years later, QR code technology is experiencing a revival ...
Imagine walking down your city’s main thoroughfare one morning and you turn the corner to see a massive black and white sporadically-checkered pattern sprawled out on the side of a building in the shape of a square. Immediately you peg it as one of those QR codes you see printed in magazines and on the sides of shipping containers. You get out your nifty smartphone, access the bar code reader you downloaded last week (because it’s free) and hold your camera up to focus in on the huge QR code presented before you. Meanwhile, several other pedestrians are doing the same thing nearby. Who knows how many people can see such a massive display? At any rate, the scanned bar code takes you to a website notifying you of a new club opening in that building. Whether you’re a club hound or not, surely you’d admit that was a worthy marketing ploy.
"I had to solve a problem: How do I share a slide presentation with an audience when a projector is not available? My solution was to upload the slides to SlideShare’s free web sharing service and use a Google QR code to let the audience quickly find and see the presentation. So, how did all this work out?"
QR Codes are showing up on web pages, business cards, signage, store windows, coffee cups, and lots of other places but now, they can hang on your walls as art, proudly hanging right next to your prized Picasso.
In essence, SCVNGR is chucking the pure daily deals play for a romp in the mobile payments hay. The company’s approach clearly borrows from Starbucks’s successful mobile payments system. It will compete with mobile payments systems such as Google Wallet — oddly enough, Google Ventures is an investor in SCVNGR — and Square Card Case, a pay-with-your-name system. LevelUp also closely resembles Kuapay, another pay-by-QR-code mobile payments platform.
