QR Code Embedded Images

QR Code with embeded image

QArt Coder is an online tool that allows to embed images into QR Codes.

QR codes are 2-dimensional bar codes that encode arbitrary text strings. A common use of QR codes is to encode URLs so that people can scan a QR code (for example, on an advertising poster, building roof, volleyball bikini, belt buckle, or airplane banner) to load a web site on a cell phone instead of having to “type” in a URL.

QR codes are encoded using Reed-Solomon error-correcting codes, so that a QR scanner does not have to see every pixel correctly in order to decode the content. The error correction makes it possible to introduce a few errors (fewer than the maximum that the algorithm can fix) in order to make an image. QArt Coder exploits that to embed an image into the QR code.

Zen Table – Drawing In Sand

The Zen Table is basically a plotter integrated into a coffee table. Instead of drawing with ink, it pulls a steel ball held by a magnet through a sand like material. Much like an automated Etch A Sketch.

The project was financed on Kickstarter and now sells in different sizes from 500$ to 5000$.
