THIS IS WHAT A QR CODE LOOKS LIKE....
IN LAYMAN'S TERMS: THIS IS A BAR-CODE
A QR Code (it stands for "Quick Response") is a mobile phone readable bar-code that's been big in Japan forever, broke into Europe a while back, and is now getting traction in USA.
In it's simplest sense think "print based hypertext link" - simply encode a URL into the QR Code and then point a mobile phone (or other camera-enabled mobile) at it. If the device has had QR Code decoding software installed on it, it will fire up its browser and go straight to that URL.
But it doesn't stop there - a QR Code can also contain a phone number, an SMS message, V-Card data or just plain alphanumeric text, and the scanning device will respond by opening up the correct application to handle the encoded data appropriately courtesy of the FNC1 Application Identifiers that are embedded in the encoded data.
