Practical Uses of QR Code

In this post, we will discuss the practical use of QR Code or Quick Response Code.For the past decades we humans have become accustomed to the representation of data digitally. In the past we would represent data using lines (“||||” represents 4 and when we cross it to represent 5).

As time passed, we all know that there is no limits for inventions.
