#myQRcode: What does the QR code for your blog look like? Let’s play!

Right. After seeing Wadds’ blog post on how dot matrix bar codes may be reaching their tipping point, I had a play with the QR code generator to see what what the QR code for my blog looked like. Here it is! Let’s see yours too. Oh and be sure to add #myQRcode as a hashtag so I can hunt you down on Twittersearch.

For those who are wondering what on earth i’m talking about,  QR (or quick response) codes are small,  square-shaped barcodes that consist of up to half a webpage of data. This technology was initially meant for for tracking parts in vehicle manufacturing but has found its way into the consumer mobile sector, as an information tagging application.

And because it looks pretty cool too as a design its also making its way into the fashion field. If I was at a company like Spreadshirt, I’d devise a campaign around people designing T-shirts that included QR codes on things of personal interest to each entrant, such as their blogs, local news, or a message they wanted to send to the world. Or maybe it could feature in a personalised messaging campaign for a mobile phone company?
