Nearly Wordless Wednesday 😉
According to Wikipedia, the font of all knowledge, QR Codes [short for Quick Response codes] storing addresses and URLs already appear in magazines, on signs, buses, business cards and on just about any object about which users might need information. Haven’t noticed qr codes yet? Look around… you will!
Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct app can scan the image of the QR Code to display text, contact information, connect to a wireless network or open a web page in the phone’s browser. This act of linking from physical world objects is known as a hardlink or physical world hyperlinks.
Including phone numbers, email addresses, URLs and such on your business cards is soooo last week. Here’s how my new business card might appear. If you don’t have the app yet you can click on the QR code to see what would happen. So, are you ready to jump on the QR bandwagon? Best hurry, this train is leaving the station!
p.s. milkandcuddles.com has a great video explaining how to use a QR reader!
