Fun Uses of QR Codes: QR Code Dice

Fun Uses of QR Codes: QR Code Dice | The Fail List - From "Oh So Close"  to "Never Again" | Scoop.it

This might actually have been fun - however.... The article didn't give me a face of the die to scan to find the wonderment they described.

 

I followed a link to the originator of the QR die - who did have a face on image available - however, my i-nigma scanner wouldn't read it.  A lot of effort for a lot of disappointment - maybe an improved image would have at least let me see the "rolling" dice at the destination......

Hey Jay! Sorry for not providing a clearer image--the point wasn't where exactly the die actually went to, but just the concept of providing a fun, random experience for scanners. The die was also part of a contest last summer, so the maker (who was not me!) may have deactivated the codes she used. I'll try to make that clearer in the post!

Hi Kerry - Thanks for the clarification, I too was hoping to experience the randomness - I thought that was a pretty innovative idea for QR Codes.

I followed your link to the 3D contest Flickr pages and saw some of the interesting ways folks were trying to produce QR codes - it seems knitting them decreases readability.

Let me know if y'all ever do a campaign featuring "random" QR codes - would love to send that out to my QR Code Innovation list.
