QR Codes, more formally known as Quick Response Codes, are interactive markers which can be used to link to a wide range of things including websites, images, videos etc.
People can then scan these codes using a QR Code Reader (free to download) on their smartphone (e.g. IPhone, Android) which will automatically interpret the reading from the marker and send the user through to the content.
The main use of QR Codes is for advertising and is becoming increasingly popular for companies.
More examples of what the QR codes could link to are:
- A text message
- A photo gallery
- Web page
- Virtual business card
- Video or music file
