"Real World Hyperlinks" Article at evolt.org

You may be wondering what this graphic means. Perhaps it's your first time seeing it, but perhaps you've seen it here and there and not understood its significance. It is called a Quick Response Code, or QR code. If you've got a cell phone camera and a reader (many already do), then you can use this little guy as a hyperlink in the real world.

QR code in ad in Wired magazine.
