What is a
QR Code?
Quick Response Code.

First developed in Japan in the 1990s to track cars during manufacturing.
QR Code is a registered trademark of DensoWave Industries.

QR Codes can...
Hold more information than bar codes.
Link to:

And more...
Some QR Codes have more pixels, meaning the information (link, text, etc.) has more characters to represent.
