QR Codes are going to be everywhere soon. They are similar to bar codes and already very popular in Japan. Japanese teenagers print T-shirts with QR codes on them. When the shirts are shot with a phone camera it launches their homepage. Tell me that’s not pretty cool. I created the above QR code which will take you to Wire to the Ear. I used a free service found at: qrcode.kaywa.com
There are a few QR Code readers for the iPhone. There is a free QR Code reader named Barcodes. Barcodes does the magic trick well: You take a photo of a QR Code, it scans it and asks you if you want to launch the URL.
iCandy is a service that matches QR Code creation with sharing and printing. Without a doubt I’m going to put a QR code to my latest album on the back of my business cards.
