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
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.
To mark their 10,000th Marine Stewardship Council, a sustainable seafood watch group, certified sushi dish, Moshi Moshi took up the challenge to make a QR code out of sushi to tell their certified sustainable seafood story. The video chronicles their many failed attempts to create QR codes out of everything from green tea powder to squid ink. The video shows how they finally did it, and tells more about the QR coded sushi on their menu for 2013.
Very cool, not the only QR Code sushi, see my post QR Sushi from SushiShop

The world’s largest golf facility, Mission Hills Shenzhen, China claimed a world record “human” QR Code. The QR Code was formed by almost 2,000 of their staff with umbrellas. I have not been able to find a scannable photo. The QR Code is supposed to resolve to a campaign website promoting sustainable eco-tourism and a prize draw. Umbrella QR Codes seem to be fashionable at the moment, like this one from Taiwan.
