The QR code is a bi-dimensional bar code capable of storing up to 7089 characters. QR Code carries information both horizontally and vertically, capable of encoding the same amount of data of a standard bar code in approximately one-tenth the space of a traditional bar code. It looks like this one:
An example of business application for this code, as shown in the demo, is having the business card information encoded and printed on the top of the card or on its back. Using a mobile application you can take a picture of this code, and automatically scan it for the information, adding to your contacts database.
Interesting that the demo shows a Windows Mobile application - but there's nowhere to download such a thing - yet. I would like to have one of those. And I would print QR codes on my business cards, for sure. How geek is that?
By the way, be the first to post below the correct contents of the QR Code in this page and I will have an Amazon gift voucher for you.
