QR code dice. Something I've always wanted.
Set the scene: You are bound by duty to attend another family do, the drinks are flowing and then the games appear. You know that game playing always dissolve in to arguments, and as tempers flare, occasionally a game board ends up flying across the kitchen.
Now, to make sure family members become enraged and irrational even more rapidly, treat them to a game with QR dice.
"What did I roll?"
Open your smartphone, open application, poise the camera, scan, open, and there is your number. Every single time.
Playing cards next?

Part of a 3D art project, QR code has found itself on clothing.
The participants of the project state their reasons as:
Can they be functional and direct people to places on the internet?
How can QR codes be created in textile form? How can designers, crafters, makers, tinkerers, artists, coders and interested dabblers use textile QR codes to send viewers to interesting places?
How can an internationally and digitally collaborative project share ways of working and increase opportunities for exposure and networking?
Other examples include cushion covers, scarves, book covers and stitch patterns.
In the City of Manor, Texas, QR codes are used to display information on historical monuments.
The aim behind using quick response codes in this manner was to 'engage citizens, businesses and tourists by using mobile technology on a very limited information technology budget'.
City staff have educated local businesses on how QR-codes can be utilized in their marketing strategies, and the City of Manor planned to extend their wireless facilities to reduce problems for tourists who do not wish to pay to download content on their mobile devices.
