    Well, there you go. It’s a crazy Mad fold-in QR code.

  5. sg says:

    I had to zoom in with Firefox like 3 times before I could get one of those codes to load on my phone. But it totally works.

    I read it as “Crapping paper”. Ha!

    too late. I already made qr code stickers that do that. ohh well. I guess you’ll have to look for them in the wild.

    I have been playing around with QR codes, but can’t get past the novelty aspect yet.

    One question: Is there such a thing as a desktop app for the Mac that allows one to scan a QR code with a webcam? I know the whole push is to use this with mobile devices, but what about those of us without smart-phones?

      Found this thread for ya http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=686961

      For QR codes on-screen (such as that picture of a present), if you have an external camera just point it back at your screen (a more elegant solution would be an app that can scan the rendered screen directly, without a camera).

      • Jack says:

        Thanks! I actually found those a whole back and it seems odd to me that there are slick apps for mobile devices, but for non-mobile devices it seems like it’s all hacked & patched together. An Adobe AIR app is the best stand-alone option? Oy…

    I’m QR code obsessed too. I just finished a perler QR code. I think it’s a little mean for xmas, but I used to QuickRoll the guys at my old job. QR codes were great for sharing NSFW links too.

    I’ve seen a couple of QR codes at the end of TV adverts this last week. They stay up for two seconds if you’re lucky, and I estimate that getting the camera ready on my iPhone 3G takes ten times that long. So now I sit there like a hawk, an admittedly quite unusual hawk, iPhone in hand, waiting for the ad break so I can capture these fleeting dataghosts and find out if there’s some additonal information about the product that the advert didn’t – or couldn’t – contain.
