QR codes with i-nigma You can encode either a link to a website, a message to a friend, or your contact details. Then turn the information into a mobile barcode, one that can be printed on stationery, advertising or packaging, a t-shirt, or even built into a website or a Facebook page - and read by an i-nigma enabled mobile device. Creating a mobile barcode is easy. The following requirements must be followed to ensure your mobile barcode will work effectively: Barcode size - Minimum 2cm x 2cm. White space surrounding the barcode - for best results, we suggest at least 4mm. of white space around the barcode. Scanning distance - A 2cm x 2cm barcode can be scanned from 10cm away. Display surface - For optimal results, it is recommended to display the barcode on a flat surface. Medium - barcodes can be displayed on a variety of mediums including newspapers, magazines, packaging, posters, plasma/LCD screens, T-shirts and business cards.

World Class Physical Education @MrWickensPE QR Pictures Behind Art What if traditional forms of art could be more interactive? That's exactly what Jose Torres, better known artistically as Tony Taj, wondered. Jose, a painter and mobile designer, mainly paints intricate cityscapes on canvas, and is inspired by imagining the lives of the people who live and work on each floor and in each building he paints. Jose combined both his professions to create what he calls the Ambient Media Portal (AMP). The code will link to further artwork, be it a live character video, animation, a song, or lyrics. Speaking to GeekTech, Jose said: "This idea has been on my mind for a little over a year. At present, three of Jose's paintings have codes hidden within them, and for now the QR codes only link to animations. The funding will be mainly used to pay extra artists and Web developers to expand the AMP project. Jose isn't stopping with QR codes, however.

Coach Ratliff PE | Trying to physically educate the world, one person at a time… dansl Desktop Reader What are QR Codes?: A QR code is a lot like a barcode you see on most products. QR codes are a great way to share information like websites and contact info. They can be scanned using your camera equipped device and a proper QR code processing app (For Android, I use the Barcode Scanner App, and on iPhone I use QR Reader for iPhone.) Once the code is scanned and processed, it takes you directly to the URL on your device, or shows you whatever else was encoded in the QR code. I love the ease ability of QR codes, just a quick scan, and the content is on your device. Note: I have moved all the info and download links for QRreader to
