The development of the internet has come with innovations which have altered the way we learn and search. The use of QR codes has heightened the everyday human’s ability to search and learn within a matter of seconds.
Originally the QR code was invented to enable the tracking of car parts in a factory where cars are assembled. The QR code all started with a Japanese car manufacturing company, Denso Wave, which now in present day has become a “necessary ingredient in the future of augmented reality and pandemic control.”
This invention of the ‘QR code’ comes under the ‘tale of the thing project’ where the data shadow (the tale of the thing) is accessed and a GPS is inscribed into this code (the tale) allowing for simple tracking with ease.
The innovation of the QR code is just one of the inventions which has stemmed from an evolving ‘internet of things’. This is where certain ‘thing’ are attached with a code or data which makes the ‘thing’ unique and only traceable through the specific attachment.
