Thinking about ways to combine QR code sequences to have QR codes be more attention grabbing.

If the goal of a QR codes is to get a person to scan a code, a simple animation could draw someones attention and get them to scan the code. This is a way to grab someones attention without effecting the error correction of the code itself. Great for use in web advertising or possibly on LCD displays.  Just don’t go all blinky on us.

I tried.

By revolving a linear barcode, you get these beautiful lines, but the scanning accuracy needs to be PERFECT or it wont work. A few radians off, and you are purely in art deco land. Obviously, modifying the radius would improving scanning ability,

So, learn from my mistakes / experiment.

I think social barcodes and stickybits are still a very interesting format for 1d barcodes with a great implementation back end infrastructure.

Animation Experiment for QR code.  Works on ingima, neoreader, and qrdecode.  Problematic on others, but I learned a lot from making this code. Had to tweak to fix scanning.
Rethinking levels of detail – specifically, how detailed can you make a code if when produced no one can see the detail.  Unless you just make it big?
