QR Codes

Have you seen these codes popping up everywhere? They are called 2D matrix QR (quick response) codes and pretty soon, are going to be on anything and everything. They are barcodes that lets consumers quickly access information on businesses. Many phones are capable of reading these codes now, and soon most phones with a camera will be able to instantly access information by scanning the code with their phone.

This is my code for Summer in Newport



and this is my code for my website http://www.kristinpearce.com/


I learned about them from my computer and all-things-interesting guru Laura last week. She was showing me all about them so I googled QR Code and you can create a code for your business or website by visiting http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ You can even create a code for text or a phone number.



You might have seen something similiar on you last boarding pass. The airlines have been using these for a while. They make scanning a large amount of information very easy in little time.

Check it out!
