In a Roskilde ( Denmark ) graveyard..
Nestling amongst the colourful plants and vases is a stone with a chip called a QR (Quick Response) Code.


The QR codes, which cost about 100 euros (78; $123), are capable of storing audio and video and can help keep the deceased's legacy alive in a creative way.


Nikolai reaches down, scans the QR Code with his phone and instantly the screen fills with a photograph of his grandfather, along with a summary of his life.

So Yoric and Hamlet could actually have a "post mortem" conversation..or we could at least hear / read / see Yoric's side of the story..:)

"It's a good way for my son to remember his grandfather."


How cool, I love that!

I hope those marketing folk don't start getting in on the act though.

I suspect they already are, when one considers the cost of making a QR code that links to a simple web page, and making the page and hosting the page, ( even with images and a few thousand words of text ) is well under 5.00..( and that , even if one thinks of 10 year hosting, hosting is cheap, it is the bandwidth that costs )and the photo engraving of the QR code on a polished granite stone would not take the total cost price past 10.oo ..

90.oo gross profit ( before overheads like office space, staff, and marketing, taxes etc etc ) is OK :)

And co-incedentally is around the margins I usually work on for ecommerce :)

Even without linking to a page..You can pack a lot of data into a QR code..
