The QR codes dome

At the Venice Biennale, the thirteenth International Architecture Exhibition, [es]pecially for the event, an original dome was built [by the Russians], the walls inside of it are all covered with periodically glowing QR-codes (quick response codes enciphering some visual information) [and a]ll visitors are given tablet PCs that help to decipher the codes and see the [hidden ] images.

    Thanks, Welshcakes, Cherie and Mark.

    JD – QR I think is quick response. Will it enrich your life? How long is a piece of string?

    quick response to what……?
    still none the wiser :)
    I’ve seen those things on adverts and, because they are adverts, I assume they are some sort of brainwashing technique?

    @JD

    I think this link explains them in an easy way:

    http://www.whatisaqrcode.co.uk/

    I only know about them because people around me use them. They are basically a whizzy hyperlink that can be accessed using the right equipment; for example a smart phone.

    The images look like this (and the link gives a bit more information):

    Yes they are on adverts, if you scan the code it takes you to the product webpage, quickly and easily. So thinking about it, it could be a brain washing technique ;-)
