QR Codes are matrix type codes developed to accomplish three primary goals;
How do they work?
QR codes can be read by the camera in most mobile phones. Once they are scanned, software deciphers the encrypted information and initiates a response. This response can involve either directing the phone to a website, providing the user with information stored within the code or instigating an event. In any case, it eliminates the need to search for content and provides direct access to information.
What is it used for?
In fact, Louis Vuitton & Takashi Murakami have created a designer QR code just for the beauty of it!
In a nutshell
How much does it cost?
Scanning the codes costs nothing however, since some codes have a web link to prompt mobile browsing you will need to confirm access cost with your communications provider.
DENSO have recently released the Security QR Code (SQRC). Any QR Code enabled device can read QR Codes therefore SQRCs were developed to meet the growing demands for the secure transportation of data with the product. Confidential information is code key encrypted and combined in the QR Code. This means that the QR code can still be read by general readers, but the encrypted data is protected and only accessible using a special reading device with the same SQRC code key.
