Shopping with Smartphones and QR Codes
South Korea is the second most hard working people in the world and shopping for food once a week is not top of their list of priorities. So, in order to increase their share of the market, Tesco came up with the idea of virtual shops.
They pasted images of the actual shelving units in their stores onto the walls of the subway and coded each product with a QR code. Suddenly, passing workers could order their groceries as if they were on their home computer whilst they were waiting for their train. In an ethos where no minute should be wasted, it was an ideal solution.
You can put QR codes on almost anything and send people to any page on any website. All you need is a free qr code maker plus a qr code reader for your smartphone. Just type in QR code reader to your app store – I use Qrafter or Quickmark, both free apps which allow you to scan qr codes with your phone which then redirect to the web page concerned. Of course, you still need to make sure that the destination website is mobile phone friendly.
