  • Now this is just cool: QR “Art”?

    2012 - 06.03

    I think I found this one because of a tweet, but it could have been Facebook.  Regardless I thought these were kinda cool, and if nothing else some interesting out of the box thinking.

    In Seoul, retailer uses 3D QR codes and the sun to deliver discounts only during its quiet times

    You can read the article for more details, but essentially it’s a combination sundial, modern art, QR code.

    I’m actually most impressed by the fact that it only works for an hour a day.  I suppose though that might not have been the hard part, not knowing enough about how sensitive QR codes are and such, it seems impressive, but it might have been harder to make a sculpture that worked for a longer period of time.  When you don’t know enough about something, you don’t know if it’s actually hard, or just seems like it should have been.

    Regardless it’s kinda neat.
