Brazil’s largest youth and student travel organization Central de Intercâmbio has a print campaign running showing flags of the world composed from QR Codes. The idea is that students can cut out the ads and use them as pocket travel guides. The large QR Code in the Spanish flag below resolves to a mobile site with comprehensive information on the city of Madrid.

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
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.

Step 4 Get It!:
Final QR Code (try it – it scans!):
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.”

When a person suffers cardiac arrest, most people don’t know what to do. That’s why the Dutch Heart Foundation developed an IPhone app. The IPhone app provides audio support for performing CPR.
They wanted to encourage people to download the app by combining the problem and the solution in one visual. They developed a print ad with a QR-code, entirely made of real people.
Scan the picture, if you can or the video at 1:21 with a QR-reader and it will send you immediately to the app-store, to download the Dutch CPR app.
The IPhone app is in Dutch and the QR Code is difficult to scan, but it does scan (video at 1:21.)
