Wikipedia launches new QR code project to document daily life in Monmouth, UK | QR Code Press

Wikipedia launches new QR code project to document daily life in Monmouth, UK | QR Code Press | Culture(s) transmedia | Scoop.it

Wikipedia has chosen the Welsh town of Monmouth in the UK for a new project that will make use of QR codes. The project will be named Monmothpedia and aims to document the life of the entire town.

 

Several prominent locations, people and historic artifacts will be linked to a mobile Wikipedia page that can be accessed by scanning QR codes with a smart phone. Residents of the city will also take part in the project, as Wikipedia is tapping the populace for articles about life in the city.

The World’s First QR Code Film Festival

The World’s First QR Code Film Festival | Culture(s) transmedia | Scoop.it

QR Codes have been used before at film festivals for promotion and advertising but tomorrow sees the start of the world’s first “QR Code Film Festival”. The festival is organized in Korea from 21st to 31st July and will take place anywhere in the world where there is internet access, smartphone users and access to the film festival poster (image below). Scanning one of the QR Codes will show a short animation movie from YouTube and there will be a choice of 14 different films. The organizers would like anyone who is interested in participating to print the poster (downloadable PDF) and display it at a suitable venue. They would also like to receive feedback and images at qrfilm to help them organize and promote the 2012 QR Code Film Festival.

Novel QR Code Postage Stamp

Novel QR Code Postage Stamp | Culture(s) transmedia | Scoop.it

QR Codes on postage stamps are not new (cf. QR Code Valentine’s Day postage stamps from Taiwan and a QR Code postage stamp from Spain) but these (image below) from Hrvatske pošte, the national postal service of Croatia, incorporate a novel functionality.

 

Each of the 3.10 Kuna (0.56 U.S. dollars) stamps has a unique code printed below the QR Code. Scanning the QR Code takes the user to a mobile site where the unique code can be entered and view confirmation on the receipt of your mail as well as additional data about its route.

 

Users can find out when the mail was sent, how many kilometers it had travelled, when it reached its destination and more. The QR Code stamp was produced to mark the 20th anniversary of the issuance of postal stamps by Croatian Post.
