What can QR Codes do for you?

A QR Code (short for Quick Response) is a two-dimensional barcode that can be read by barcode readers and camera phones. Originally created by Toyota to track parts in vehicle manufacturing, QR codes are now used for all sorts of applications. Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct reader app can scan the QR code.
