Could a hand-drawn piece of art actually work as a functional QR code.
Whatâ€™s a QR code you ask?
A QR Code is a matrix code (or two-dimensional bar code) created by Japanese corporation Denso-Wave in 1994. The "QR" is derived from "Quick Response", as the creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed. – Wikipedia
If youâ€™ve read my posts while actually visiting my site and not reading the posts through an RSS feed, you may have seen the QR code that allows you to scan the 2-dimensional barcode and grab my contact information.
If you follow me regularly here and in my other social media activities, youâ€™ll probably also know that I do whatever I can to support my friend, Papa Roux. Well Papa Roux shares with me tonight a hand-drawn QR code and wants me to test it.
Look at that! And you know what. It works!
It didnâ€™t initially on my Barcode Scanner app for my Android phone, but it eventually did when I resized it and focused it on it a bit more. If youâ€™ve got a suggestion for another barcode scanning app for the â€˜Droid, let me know.
I donâ€™t know how it works, canâ€™t believe it works with such non-block glyphs on a page. Papa was telling me it was all about how it just quantizeâ€™s from the 3 main corner blocks and then registers the different coordinates on a basis of being > 50% or < 50% black and white. Honestly he lost me quick, because I have a problem of just dreaming about eating at his cajun restaurant on the east side of Indianapolis anytime I start talking to him.
