QR codes aren’t new – they’ve been around since the mid 90’s, but they’ve seen a revival lately thanks to Covid-19 and the need to get information to consumer’s safely.
What is a QR Code?
QR code stands for Quick Response code. They were invented in 1994 by Masahiro Hara, a Japanese entrepreneur who wanted to keep track of parts going through a car assembly line. They are a 2-dimensional barcode which stores information, and when scanned with the camera, can point the user to a website, or app.
