In the United States, QR codes are now appearing on magazine ads, web pages, billboards, and even T-shirts. They can embed different kinds of information, such as contact data, movie trailers, website URL, event details, product information, or product coupons. QR codes are different than a traditional bar code because they can digitally store a greater amount of data. Another advantage is they can be read by most cell phone with a camera, rather than requiring a bulky hand-held scanner (which most people don’t carry in their purse or pocket). The video clips below show two examples of QR codes in use. The first shows how a QR codes conveys simple contact information from a business card, while the second connects to a website:
