QR Codes....

QR code - clearerreflections.blogspot.com

QR codes....they seem to be everywhere anymore...tempting me to whip out my iPhone and scan away! So far I've limited my use of these things...figured I don't need the information offered or to give up info about myself to some unknown source. Do use my reader from time to time and have found it to be a quick way to download without having to key in a URL.

Now...being a boy who likes to play with his toys...I was checking out all the features that my QR reader had to offer. (I have QR Reader for iPhone (Premium) by TapMedia Ltd.) Not only does this app quickly read QG codes, it also has a feature called "QR Creator"! This gives you the option to create your own codes from URL's, phone numbers, text, GEO locations, email addresses...and several more that I'm not sure about!! So...I just had to create some codes!!!  First...I created a code for this blog...that's the one at the top.

QR Code - etsy.com/shop/clearerreflections
This second one is for my Etsy shop, Clearer Reflections.....



QR Code - etsy.com/shop/reflectiveimages
and...this third one is for my other Etsy shop, Reflective Images.



Okay...so what do I do with them? Haven't quite decided. Probably put them on my business cards. Could work them into my collage/assemblage pieces. Maybe into my photography! (I'll have to try using Hipstamatic on them....this might just be cool!!!)

I'm open to suggestions....in the meantime, point your QR Reader at the screen...it works...I just tried it!!

Have a great Monday...and a wonderful week!!

I saw an interesting art show where the guy blew up pictures and made them really pixels.. and they look like QR codes. I always think it's interesting when you can incorporate digital into art.

I didn't know anything about these codes. I guess I'm really behind the times! Maybe it's because I only have a cheap, pay-as-you-go cell phone. But I'm so glad you posted this so I may possibly not look real stupid should it come up in any future conversations.

One of these days when I finally get my iPhone I will have to point.

I still don't understand what these codes are all about!! Oh dear, something else I need to learn!

@ indian yarn ~ I never thought of that...these codes do make for a great maze! Thanks for the thought...I'll have to ponder on this awhile...
