Quick Response Barcodes.

Have you ever seen one of those weird barcodes on parcels and packaging?  They are called Quick Response barcodes.  These barcodes are very similar to the ones you and I know of but the have the extra second dimension to save data to.  A post on Coding 4 Fun allows you to encode and decode these odd shapes (see here). You can put your name on things, add URLs to anything and even put small images in a binary format on everyday items.  Looks fun anyway.  I suggest you try it!
