History In 1994, Japanese company Denso Wave Incorporated (a subsidiary of Toyota) developed the first QR code Denso Wave needed an easily scannable code that could store more data than traditional bar codes
Capacity Traditional bar codes can store up to 20 characters QR codes can store 7,089 numeric and 4,295 alphanumeric characters The 2D (two-dimensional) design of QR codes allows it to hold more data than bar codes
