another application of QR code

Did not know until now what QR code is so the link in the article helped very much. After knowing what QR code is, first thing that came to my mind is this ad by Blackberry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Sbc_-ZN2Wc

Pretty unique in its appeal.

Interesting possibilities for the supply chain. If the cost savings become compelling enough, it sounds like a good technology.

Particularly in the case of medical information, providing communication between the scanning device and the symbol becomes critical, allowing the scanner to read only if the device is authorized. Interesting technology.

QR Codes; Counterfeiting solution

This technology can ensure product authenticity and solve the problem of counterfeiting in supply chain, it's just to embedded anti-counterfeit encyption into QR codes and place it on the electronics products.  Some electronics products already have it, like Insignia LED TV.

"Average costs are difficult to determine, because the technology aims to solve unique company problems".

This is a great idea and a new venture for the electronics supply chain. If the costing issue is simplified.

@Jaden

You're right, it can provide a product verification to know which product is original, and the consumers can as well access the manufacturer's website by scanning the products QR code to learn more about the brand and its products.

The codes can not only link to large amounts of data, but also triggers scripts on a web server linked to the scanner.  This has interesting possibilities for automated manufacturing and logistics.

Unless QR codes are a lot smaller than I've seen, they are going to be too big for many electronic components, especially the rice grain sized passive components.  Marking the reel is not enough these days.

@Dorothea, Valid point. But don't you think the point about size also applies to RFID tags? In the end, perhaps the utility of these devices is more in the packaging than in the individual components. It's also likely supply chain people may seek to use QR codes only in finished goods because it may be easier to place the symbols on the packaging.

With the help of QR code we can store more data about the product than RFID . We can reduce the size as the it's only binary/alphanumeric symbols. The readability is fast in improving the decoding rate. We can hope in the near future QR will be all over.
