QR, Quick Response, codes are two dimensional barcodes that can be scanned with a mobile device that has a camera. Once the code is scanned the device is prompted to load a webpage, display text, or other data contained in the code. QR codes were first created by Denso-Wave, a Toyota subsidiary, in 1994 as a way to track manufactured parts. Denso-Wave holds the patent rights for QR codes, but instead of exercising them they decided to make the technology freely available.
Unlike conventional barcodes that can only store information in a horizontal manner, QR codes can store information both horizontally and vertically.
Conventional barcodes can typically store between 20 to 40 characters. QR codes can store up to a maximum of 7,089 characters
