  3. 3. What is a QR code?<br />First, QR stands for; Quick Response. That’s exactly what it is, a quick way to get any type of information. When we want to know something we want it fast and if its easy to get it the better.<br />The concept of the QR code was created in Japan back in 1994.  We can see that now it is starting to be a big and business owners and new companies should consider using it.<br />The code (on the right) is made of black squares and formed together to compile a readable code once it has been scanned.

Now, at first it may seem odd, but his reasoning was that so no one would forget her. <br />He said he was concerned about the years to come (20 or 40 years) because he wants keep his mother’s memory alive. Personally, I thought it was a great idea.<br />
