Over the last several years, QR codes have surged in popularity. QR code, which stands for quick response code – was originally developed for the Japanese auto industry. Now a days, you can find QR codes on just about anything (case in point, here is a scarf with a QR code) – though most popular would be a business card.
In addition to URL, QR codes can also be used for information such as free text (when scanned text pops up), phone number, contact, SMS and location.
