QR Code

I first found out when my friend who owns a Nokia E71 that has this application that would be able to reveal…

What does this picture above trying to illustrate?

  1. Go to this website.
  2. Select your mobile brand and mobile model and download the application.
  3. Install it to your phone.
  4. Open the application and scan the picture to see what is it trying to illustrate.
  5. Happy Trying!

*Subject to phone compatibility.

*May require to sign up for a new account.

It was a QR code that is quite similar to Barcode. A bit of explanation:…

“A QR Code is a matrix code (or two-dimensional bar code) created by Japanese corporation Denso-Wave in 1994. The "QR" is derived from "Quick Response", as the creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.

QR Codes are common in Japan, where they are currently the most popular type of two dimensional codes. Most current Japanese mobile phones can read this code with their camera.”
