QR Code Hotel

October 3, 2012

QR Code HotelBecause all my friends claim I “work on barcodes,” they send me links to goofy data capture stuff they come across. Sometimes it’s great fodder for sharing, like this poast at The New Aesthetic about a hotel room decorated in QR codes.

The Modez Hotel in the Dutch city of Arnhem sports this room, where everything, curtains, comforter, you name it, is covered in QR codes of varying sizes. I doubt these were designed to take advantage of regular 2D barcode scanners and are really for you to scan with your smartphone, as the codes take you to more… risqué content: steamy written messages, pictures, etc.

QR codes aren’t necessarily controversial, but there is a lot of pushback from various tech outlets. It’s great to see them used in a unique and useful way, as it provides a good counter to many of the poorly implemented QR codes out there.
