Here is unique idea from France; a Teller Party is a friendly and relaxed evening where everyone comes in a T-shirt and where each T-shirt has a Teller Code ®.
The Teller Party can be directed but more often it stands alone in the sense that people take pleasure in discovering what each is “hiding” behind the code – just for that evening.
To help you succeed in your evening (or morning for that matter), they offer our “Teller Party Kits”.
Your kit contains a discount code (to appear on posters and flyers) that will allow anyone to use it to get a € 5 discount on all purchases made on their site, and you the promoter gets a voucher for € 5 each time it happens.
The “Party Kit Teller” is 17.50 € (packaging and delivery costs included for metropolitan France) , specifically designed for individuals and / or small associations, sports clubs and communities. It includes:
- 5 posters TP - A2 (59x42cm) on glossy coated 135gr.
- 4 assorted posters TC - A2 (59x42cm) impressession high quality with UV coating on coated 200gr.
- TC 100 flyers printed recto / verso, A6 (10.5×14.8cm.

The Dutch company LogoBorduurstudio have produced a YouTube video of a computer controlled embroidery machine creating a QR Code. The company based in Barneveld, The Netherlands will embroider a QR Code on either an item of clothing you send them or on any item from their range of casual and work wear. The QR Codes measure 6cm square without a border and 7cm square with a border. It costs $65 but I would guess that there is a significant amount of setup time involved. I had some excellent printed t-shirts made at Zazzle.com
Created by Australian-based start-up of the same name, Sharetapes are physical cards that you can load with playlists from YouTube, Spotify, 8tracks and more. You can then share your playlist on other people’s smartphones via near-field communication (NFC) technology or quick response (QR codes) scanning codes.
To play your tape, either tap with NFC (recent Android, Windows and Blackberry devices) or scan with a QR code reader (iPhones and non-NFC devices).
It is too bad that the example code is only a number and not a YouTube video about the product.
Found the www.visualead.com QR Code generator a few months ago, I was quite impressed with the technology and resulting QR Codes. They gave me a few credits so I could review their site, here is the review. It will be short since the site is so easy to use.
I used a local PR Agency (http://richettmedia.com/) photo since their site uses responsive web design and looks great on a computer screen and on a mobile phone, so scanning the QR Code could actually be useful! Click the link above and then scan the QR Code at the end to see a responsive web design site.
Step1: Select an Image (Yours or theirs) – I uploaded a photo, but could have chosen one of their images.
Step 2: Edit QR – You can choose a URL, Mobile Page, vCard, YouTube Video, Twitter Follow, Application URL or an Email Address.
Step 3: Place QR – Move and Resize the QR Code.
Generate QR Code:
Step 4 Get It!:
Final QR Code (try it – it scans!):
Lego has announced its new Lego Mindstorms EV3 platform.
Lego Mindstorms EV3, expected in the second half of 2013 for US $349, features robust programming and expansion capabilities. Powered by the new Mindstorms EV3 Intelligent Brick, the kit will have new Linux-based firmware, an SD slot, a USB port, and a new infrared sensor. One of the parts of the new kit is the Intelligent Brick which shows a QR Code that is linked to a non-obile friendly website with a description of the Everstorm robot. The video on the site requires Flash 9, not mobile phone friendly!
The QR-Cube is a solid wooden cube with scannable QR codes etched into it’s sides. These codes however, are a bit different, they are programmable. Each QR-Cube and its codes are totally unique, so you can log into the site and program the sides of your cube to scan to wherever you like.
They wanted to do a little local promotion, so they whipped up a 5′ Cube that rides on the back of a truck.
