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.

Pawcode has announced its new quick response code products to give peace of mind to animal owners. With these innovative QR code pet tags, it becomes possible for a larger amount of identifying information to be worn by the animal so that a good Samaritan will be able to scan the barcode with his or her smartphone and obtain the contact information of the owner. This will make it far easier for someone who has found an animal to be able to find out exactly how to bring the dog or cat home again.

Why Job Seekers Aren't Scanning QR Codes

Now that QR codes have been around for a little while now and are fairly prevalent, it feels safe to say that they have not caught on with the general population. In 2012, roughly 20% of people in the U.S. scanned QR codes, according to Pitney Bowes. Maybe it’s just me, but that number probably hasn’t increased much since. I know I haven’t scanned a QR code in that time frame. There is one simple reason for that: The large majority of smartphones do not offer a preloaded QR reader. Users must download a reader from the app store of their choice before being able to scan a QR code – and most users don’t appear willing to make that effort.
