If you have a problem with getting up in the morning, there's a way the Quick Response code can help. There's now an app that would make you scan a QR code to turn off your alarm clock. You can set it up to require you to scan the barcode on your orange juice carton or one of those QR code coffee mugs. That way you can't just roll over, push a button, and go back to sleep. This would require you to get out from under those comfy blankets and go into the kitchen to turn off the alarm. Or, at the very least, put that code on your nightstand.
Speaking of codes on your drink, if you want more information about the beer you're enjoying, you're in luck. Budweiser is using QR codes to allow their customers to track their Bud.
The campaign — “Track Your Bud” — lets customers trace the beer in their hands from its production at one of Budweiser’s 12 U.S. breweries, including Columbus, to their refrigerator. It even has an app that allows users who are the first to register a particular “Born On” date to name that particular batch of beer.
Even if you can't find the item with the QR code on it, this tech can still help you out. If you put a custom QR Code on your key ring , you can put your contact information on it so if they are left somewhere, whoever finds it can scan the code and learn how to contact you.
Want to try it for yourself? You can create a free QR code via our Barcode Generator or, for you developers, try the RACO Barcode API demo today and see what you can do with the power of the QR Code.
