This video show how much work is required for a mosaic Qr Code!
Rio de Janeiro began installing a series of QR code patterns onto its pavements on Friday 25 January in preparation for the 2016 Olympics, starting at Arpoador by Ipanema Beach. Created with the traditional black and white mosaic tiles that already line the streets in this area.
The Department of Conservation said it plans to implement the QRIO project at 30 locations across the city by the year’s end and 50 locations by July 2014 when Rio hosts the FIFA World Cup.
Sidney Haddad, founding partner of digital technology company Zóio, explained that the idea was inspired by designs from similar projects in cities such as Lisbon and Barcelona that have already adopted the code in Portuguese stones. “We tried to create something with the essence of being cosmopolitan, but with strong cultural roots. We propose to map the city with QR Code technology so that you can access information of a certain place without the need for signs, but through your mobile device.”
