You might have seen one of these codes recently and been wondering what it is.

It’s a QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code). This is a type of code made up of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background.

The technology has seen frequent use in Japan; and is fast becoming popular in the UK as well.

Anyone with a Smart Phone (iphones, android phones, blackberries, etc.) can scan this code with a QR reader app (available for free). They’re then redirected to a website, sign up form, video, picture, a twitter follow page or a Facebook like button.

The benefit

It makes it very easy for you to redirect people to the exact place online you want them to go without them having to type in a long website address.

Where to get them from

Just Google QR code generator to find lots of options. I used http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ to generate the one in this blog post. If you scan that one it will take you to the Make Sport Fun Twitter page.
