A Quick Response or QR code is a 2D matrix barcode that uses squares to encode information both horizontally and vertically. The means it can contain much more information than the now ubiquitous linear barcode and indeed another type of 2D Data Matrix code.
Used in commercial tracking applications but increasingly in convenience-oriented applications aimed at mobile phone users, the QR code may appear in a newspaper or on signs, buses, etc.
A QR-capable phone can then use its camera to ‘read’ the pixelated square, which could contain a URL that would automatically be linked to on your phone, or even an encoded text message. This act of linking from physical world objects is known as a ‘ hardlink ’ or a ‘ physical world hyperlink .’
