What's That Strange Barcode?

Have you seen this strange little barcode type thing on posters around the LRC and College?  What is it?
This is what we call a QR Code and you might have seen them in shop windows, on food packaging, at a museum, etc..  They are very much like barcodes - but with one click they direct you to different online information.

To view the information in a QR Code you need a camera phone and an app called a QR Reader.  You can get these apps for most SmartPhones (iPhone, etc).

You then scan the code and it directs you to some information, which could be some text, a photo, a website, or an e-mail contact.

Watch this video to learn more....and look out for more QR Codes coming soon to the LRC.
