  • This is a bit about- QR Codes!

  • The term Augmented Reality is defined as

  • environment that includes both

  • real-world and virtual-world elements.

  • A very simple example of an augmented reality

  • would be the use of QR Codes.

  • If you haven’t heard or seen QR codes

  • you soon will.

  • QR or Quick Response codes are

  • two dimensional matrix codes that

  • trigger responses in smart phones.

  • The response triggered could be a simple

  • text message, a call to a telephone number,

  • a visual, or a trip to a website.

  • By downloading simple free applications

  • to your smart phone, access is simple.

  • Click the app

  • point your phone to the code

  • and presto an interaction occurs.

  • QR codes have been in use in Japan

  • and Europe for several years.

  • Very prevalent in Japan,

  • they have been used in advertising to promote

  • products by sending customers to websites,

  • triggering information such as nutritional details

  • or prompting a sale via coupons.

  • They have even appeared in architecture.

  • The Tokyo N Building rather than having the typical billboards

  • was built with a QR Code façade.

  • The QR code takes you to a site that gives up-to-date information

  • on the shops and services inside.

  • The vision of the future includes

  • the use of an iphone app that will allow

  • users to see those inside who

  • want to be seen and heard.

  • By clicking on them

  • you would see what they are tweeting.

  • QR codes are just starting to become

  • popular in North America.

  • with your own QR code Tshirt

  • belt buckle,

  • tattoo, or business card

  • And if you think your food has escaped the code,

  • think again
