Introducing a 10,000 square foot QR code - The world's biggest QR codes can be massively useful when used correctly but they are quickly turning into the latest marketing stunt with crazier results. This is the perfect example of the technology being used pretty foolishly because, beyond this video, no one will be able to actually scan this QR code.
