QR Codes for the Dead

QR codes sometimes appear in unlikely places, on everyday objects rather than on advertisements or billboards. And even on weird things like on teabags, the backs of Subway employees’ T-shirts, and even on bananas. When the advertising campaign ends or a company nosedives and disappears, the QR code itself may endure on these materials. Given the proliferation of memorialization websites and the use of social networking profiles as mourning spaces, it may come as no surprise that QR codes now appear on headstones, linking graveyard visitors to online tributes to the dead.

It is far from rare, nowadays, to see QR codes here and there, including on poster and billboard ads, as well as on bus stops and on food packaging, but now they are being used in an entirely new way for the European Elections this year. A South East standing party in the 2014 elections will have the barcodes added to the ballot paper. This is the first time that QR codes have made it onto the country’s ballot papers. This is because the YOURvoice party has managed to incorporate the barcodes into their official logo. This has never happened before in the U.K., according to the Electoral Commission. It was chosen by the party to be able to give voters the ability to scan using their own smartphones and a free reader app. Source: QR codes are getting into politics by engaging voters – QR Code Press | QR Code Press Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.
