QR is the short name for Quick Response. It looks like a barcode. A QR code is a two-dimensional square barcode which stores encoded data. Japan invented the QR technology. It allows encoding of 4000 and more characters in a two-dimensional barcode. The reason it is called quick response is that it can be scanned very quickly by a smart phone. The attractive feature of QR code is the speed and space which is unmatchable.
The QR is used to store large amount of information in very less space. It can be easily captured and saved. It can store massive amount of data in comparison to a standard barcode which has less capacity than the QR. The data is stored in a digital format. The QR technology is a very unique and creative digital invention. It is the most famous 2D barcode in the world these days.
No matter what your profession is, whether you are a businessman, blogger, youtuber, shop owner etc., QR code will work as an efficient and effective tool for you. The impact of using QR code is enormous in every field.
