As with all QR code initiatives the weak point is the usage. How many people will really scan a QR code on a wall and type relevant comments with their cold fingers on a smart phone while they’re standing in front of a solid piece of modern architecture? Very few, I guess. But on the other hand QRawr opens up all kinds of new forms of use of QR in general. It somehow takes QR codes to another level, as it not only re-directs users to some website that they don’t want to visit, as most QR codes do, but instead offers a platform for digital interaction. Pretty interesting!
To use QRawr one needs the neatly designed QRawr iPhone app. Unfortunately Android users have to wait for a while to use this application. The makers of QRawr went through a crowd-funding round at Kickstarter to make an Android version and new features such as geo-location, but haven’t made it in time. Anyone who wants to start pasting stickers immediately can ask for some free stickers via Twitter.
