Creative ways to use your QR codes

Qr codes (Quick Response) have swept the world, originating from Japan, they can now be seen across the world on billboards, in leaflets, magazines even in Graffiti.

QR codes are black and white square code which, once scanned (with your flashy smart phone) it will take you to a site, send a message or display a mobile number. They take about 1 minute to set up, and you can do it here! Once you have made your code the possibilities are endless.
