If you haven't seen these before, you will. People are asking, "What are those strange square looking things I'm seeing on TV, packaging and people's business cards?" They are called QR Codes, as in Quick Response. It is a type of matrix barcode that can be scanned with your smart phone to instantly give you more information. You no longer have to wait to get home to look it up on your computer. This system is popular due to its fast readability and comparatively large information storage capacity.
People with smart phones (iPhone, Android, Blackberry, etc.) are able to scan Quick Response Codes with their phone. Various information appears on their screen or it takes them directly to a website and more. Quick Response Codes can be seen on products, business cards, websites, the sides of trucks, t-shirts, in print advertising, as a PayPal Buy Now link, on inventory and more. They are even used to rack up loyalty points when you purchase a product. In E-Ticket applications, when you purchase a concert or airline ticket online, these matrix barcodes can be sent to your cell phone and then scanned at the gate when you arrive, thus eliminating the need for a hard copy ticket. You will even see them on fruit and vegetables to let you know when and where it was grown. Scanning a QR Code can even launch a map or even a video about the product you're scanning. The usages are seemingly endless. Hawaii Car Rentals has implemented a variety of them as you can see below.
