How to make your own QR code!

image_pdf

Anyone can make a QR code. Just search for a QR code creator and this will give you many websites which will help you make your own QR code. For example: https://www.qr-code-generator.com/

Look what I made! Scan this and see where it takes you…

How big can a QR code be?
The ONLY rule: as long as a QR code can be read by a mobile phone, it is the right size.
But we know that rules were made to be broken!
Case in point: Audi celebrated its 100th birthday by making the largest QR code in the world. It was 159 sq meters and needed 130 employees holding panels above their heads.

Here’s a QR code project for you to try at home and help your neighbours

Many of us live in areas with faded signboards and no real landmarks. Some buildings have helpful security guards, but many don’t. While the delivery man delivers your food or Amazon packages with a smile, most delivery staff actually face a host of problems as they struggle to find your exact house number.

So here’s our grand idea:

Why don’t you generate a QR Code with your building’s location? Print it on a paper and paste it in the lobby area.

Any resident can take a photo and send it to their guests or delivery staff asking for directions. They can scan the QR code and get exact directions on Google Maps!
