learning something new is always good.
today at communication technology development class
i learned about QR Code.
according to wikipedia,
QR code is a matrix barcode readable by QR scanners,
mobile phones with camera, and smartphones.
It consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on white background.
The information encoded can be text, URL, or other data.
it looks like this:
Our lecturer told us to download and install the inigma code reader
to our mobile phones.
Luckily, my sweet not-so-smart Blackberry
installed the application in a few minutes only.
after installing the inigma application,
i was told to scan a QR barcode on Kompas newspaper.
That application scanned the barcode and went online.
The browser automatically opened Kompas' site
that contained the news which its barcode was the one i scanned before.
