Taking QR Codes to the Next Level

Posted by aumasocialmedia on June 14, 2011

So last Saturday’s weekly trends presentation by Aris and Chad was about QR codes. We talked a little bit about how they are being used for marketing and similar applications. Well, now for something completely different, how about a dress that incorporates a QR code?

Jessica Stuart, a winner at the Webby Awards on June 13, wore a dress that incorporated QR codes. The codes showed her winning video for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

Great use of new technology!

  1. Fast Company posted an article, (http://www.fastcompany.com/1720193/13-creative-ways-to-use-qr-codes-for-marketing) on some other ways of incorporating QR codes into marketing.

    Wow, how cool it would be to have a QR code on my business card or have a QR code that would lead to a direct phone call from a potential client or to directions to your place of business. Anyone can buy QR Code stickers from http://www.bwscan.com/ and a host of other companies. Another great thing about QR Codes is that they are completely trackable.

    It seems to me that the only downside is that users will need a Smartphone to participate and this is not even a huge deal. Nielsen reports that 1 in 2 Americans will have a Smartphone by Christmas 2011 and the price of them continues to decrease. I think this is just the beginning of QR code technology.
