So what are these little square all about? Wondering if I have I become an abstract painter? Well those of you who know me, know I love innovation and advances in technology.

Once you have downloaded the reader, just hold your phone steadily over a QR code for 2-3 seconds you will be directed to the web site. No more typing or misspelling the url address!

Click on your QR reader program, place your phone over the image on the screen so it can be read and voila see what happens! Pretty amazing huh?

This technology is so far over my head. Hope I learn how to do all this in school.

Very cool Karen, thanks for posting. I don't have a smart phone but SO many people do... am sure this will be very helpful.

Missed talking with you yesterday. It was just Kathryn and I.

Karen,
After reading your interesting post I discovered this youtube video that explains a little more about them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3lrcOhmp9g

Thanks for keeping us in the techno loop!

Jerry I know you will be learning some very interesting technology!
Nanci, thanks for sharing the youtube video. I think it could lead to some interesting interactive scavenger art adventures especially in a large urban setting!

My Smart Phone is dumb, because it's not hooked to the Internet! I wanted it for its PDA capabilities, but now I can see a good use for going online with it. I'll bookmark the YouTube video for my future reference. Thanks!
