An addition to Forum Decals?
« on: January 19, 2011, 09:16:00 AM »
Whilst an old fart like me is in no rush to acquire a mobile device that can read QR_Codes lots of our potential new members will have them. Now when I can buy a 7" or 8" tablet with Android 3.0 for under £200.00 I will think again.

So how about adding a QR_Code for the Forum to the decal. Then we would make it even easier for newcomers to join us.

It might even be fun to put one on the back of the T shirt.

Ive seen them before but dont have a clue? So Ive just done a search and downloading an app to give it a try.

Do you think this will take off? What is the benefits? Do you think people will use the technology?

WOW!

It works, how clever is that.

Now I'm going to look for some free software to create these.  ;D

I think QR codes are suddenly going to take off in the UK sometime over the next year.  Other countries (Japan I know of) are really into them and put them everywhere.

They've been around for a good few years, but really need the Internet connected smartphone to work properly.
