What is a QR code?

A little QR code history goes a long way

QR codes are a type of two-dimensional barcode that were created in 1994 by the Japanese company Denso Wave to allow high-speed component scanning in the automotive industry. Humble beginnings…

20-plus years later, QR codes have outgrown their initial use thanks to their “Quick Response” to access digital content in the physical world, becoming a powerful mobile marketing tool.

By scanning a QR code you can get instant access to a URL, a vCard, a YouTube video, a social media profile or even download a file, get a discount coupon or perform a PayPal payment.

QR code uses are infinite and that is what makes them so unique.
