What are QR Codes?
Quick Response (QR) Codes were originally developed to be next generation barcodes to help with physical goods tracking. With the growing popularity of smartphones (iPhone, Android and Blackberry), QR Codes have quickly found other novel uses including its ability to bridge the physical and digital realms by allowing people to scan QR Codes using their smartphones. Think of them as "bookmarks" for physical objects that allow you to learn more about an object and untethering from the physical space constraints to obtain more information about it.
