- and Micro QR
- UNDER CONSTRUCTION
|What is QR||A QR Code is
a matrix code (or two-dimensional bar code)
The initials "QR" mean "Quick
Response". The "quick" part of "quick response" refers to the intention
that these images, when scanned, allow the contents to be decoded very

Originally created by Denso-Wave in Japan - QR Codes are common in Japan (2008-2009). Most current Japanese mobile phones can read this code with their camera.
Micro QR Code is a smaller version of the QR Code standard. Works when a phone cannot handle large scans
|In 2009 April,
Simon and his group (Team anyshirt.ca)
in the course MGD415 at UTM (University of Toronto) demonstrated a new technology that allows mobile devices to "read" an image, which then allows you to connect to a website.
Shown in the pic to the left is a T-shirt made by Simon, with the QR code for my name "Richardson"
|this pic shows
Simon "reading" the QR code with his SmartPhone, and, with a connection
to the web turned on, his phone then brings up the webpage associated with
the particular QR code
|This 2 min video includes dialoque by Prof. Richardson and Simon as to how the T-shirt's QR codes are read and what it means and what are possible applications of this technology.|
|How did it start||Initial appplication
was for identifying auto parts in manufacturing.
By 2009, QR Codes now have many applications - one of the most opular apps thatis getting the greatest recognition is how the technology is used in camera-equipped mobile phones - commonly referred to as mobile tagging.
|Opportunities||Dr. Taly Weiss,
a noted marketing trends researcher and blogger, noted on her blog July
2009 "QR codes are offering endless marketing opportunities."
|In October 2009,
UTSC student Branavaa D. undertook to write some material describing QR
codes for our online unit. Nov 19th (2009) Branavaa presented his findings
to the D06 class, including the video to the left.
Watch the video for an intro to the basic functionality of QR codes, as well as some history on how they started, and also some insight as to how they are being used in late 2009.
Branavaa also included the clip from the CSI New York Episode in which QR codes are discussed.
|In December 2009, UTSC student Branavaa D. finished his report on the basics of QR codes and for the sake of students having an intro to the topic, we have included the report here, in a PDF document, which you can access by clicking on the screen capture to the left.|
