The history of QR codes

QR codes were developed in Japan by the Denso-Wave company.

A QR code is a 2d barcode (square matrix code) designed by the Japanese corporation Denso-Wave in 1994. Initially they were used to track automobile parts during the manufacturing process. Today they are ISO standardized and open source.

QR is an abbreviation for Quick Response. It is a two-dimensional barcode (matrix barcode) that can store a link, plain text, SMS text message, addresses, URLs, Geo location, email, phone numbers, contact information and it is used for quick connections (response) between static and online content. They can be scanned with smart phone cameras using the appropriate QR code reader (scanner).

The easiest way to understand their nature in today's media world is to describe them as paper-based hyperlinks, and this is a good description of what they do.
