What is the Future of QR Codes?
will likely be replaced by Augmented Reality (AR)
AR offers a new type of engagement that moves beyond text, images, or websites, and into users’ lives
AR merges real life with overlaid digital content
AR experience is more immersive, experiential, and shareable than QR code experience
