My business card looks like it's going to get a QR code on it...but I prefer a mug shot. Well, I think that there might be a way to solve this petty problem, and I think that is by organising the QR code in such a way as to have all the little dots in just the right mosaic as to form the resemblance of one ugly bastard (me).

       The QR spec permits a portion of dots to be misaligned, discoloured or otherwise unreadable without rendering the encoded data invalid. Several hipster companies have already embedded their company logo into a QR tile.

       Why don't you pixelate, monochrome, and otherwise hammer a photo of your mug into the shape and size of a QR code, then QR scan it and see what comes out?

       Why don't you hammer your mug into the shape and size of a QR code, then scan it ?   

       Like retrophrenology, only more disfiguring …

       There is a housing estate near Leicester which, when photographed from the air with a QR-code-aware camera, takes you to the website of the Native Australian Mammals Protection Society.   

       Actually there isn't, but that gives me an idea.

       In the hometown of my youth, there's a frat house with Greek letters in white shingles on its roof. Being young, impressionable, and not lacking in religious fervor at the time, I thought that they must've been Satanists or aliens or something appropriately evil. Little did I know that they were far worse... college frat boys.

       I am simply stunned...What a find! And credit to the Author of the web-site.   

       Thank you very much <the porpoise>.

       ...QR with a face, making a VRcard, or a Mecard...bringing truth to the phrase;   

       "His face rings a bell..."   

       Ahem, carry on.
