Keeping Up With Technology. QR and Barcode Scanning the Next Frontier

With the ever increasing popularity of smart phones and the near endless possibilities they bring to the palm of your hand, it is hard to guess what the next technological breakthrough will be. I recently bought an HTC Evo 4G and downloaded a bar code app. Although I didn't use it at first, once I familiarized myself with it I started to use it all the time. With a bar code scanner your able to scan the bar code of a t-shirt your interested in buying or your favorite Amplivox products and within seconds you can pull up all the stores in your immediate vicinity and find the cheapest price and location.

Phones continue to evolve at breakneck speeds and it is hard to keep up with what seems to be a countless number of applications. The most recent form of bar code scanning is QR scanning or "Quick Response" scanning. The QR Code above allows you to scan the image with your phone and it will direct you to the Amplivox home page. Don't Believe me? Try it out for yourself!

QR Codes allow endless marketing possibilities. QR codes could also one day replace business cards. Just think about pulling out your phone at a business meeting with your QR code on the screen and all the potential client has to do is scan it and all your linkedin information would be downloaded directly to their phone. Mobile technology is changing the way we interact, QR codes will take interactions to the next level.
