More QR code madness and/or remote cursing (elder gods workload permitting)

  [vote for,

Having run through the gamut of childish taunts with QR codes I decided to come up with something stupider.

Et voila the world's first 3D (red/cyan) QR code (Exhibit A) so all you need to two smartphones and a headband and a world of 3D QR can be yours.

Moving along from that, I made the logical leap to QR codes on the backs of greeting cards, on the front it's all happy and shiny, but the code contains your truer message (Exhibit B).

For those more determined to give the card recipient a hard time, simply buy the card with Exhibit C and, elder god's work schedule permitting, the victims will soon be taken by the Soul Eater.

If you're wondering I'm just avoiding putting forward my Kickstarter proposal for that stupid Vulcan II project. Let's see which forum provide more ritual abuse by my peers, HB or there.

       //later edit, have just got the world's first (Rule 34 permitting) mildly porno QR code. <recognises the slippery slope of own inventions, from the highest of ideals to eventual slide towards Elder Gods and bare nekkid ladies.

       Ok,last update, I promise...doing novels in qr codes, see first 60 lines of the War of the Worlds...just seeing if novels work in qr codes

       A short URL produces a more practical QR code (especially given crappy mobile cameras that don't focus well). See [links] for an example.

       Have you managed to get a QR code that actually looks like a picture of something?
Ling, May 22 2015

       Yes, it looks remarkably like lots of little black squares on a white background.   

       Simple problem is you only 4k of info in text format, as it were, so you can go ascii art stylee, and that's it. So, you can get bnl and that's about it...   

       Far as I know there's no software to interpret image data in a qr code, as it would just be easier just to print the picture the code is supposed to represent...
not_morrison_rm, May 22 2015

       + for the 3d qr image. The other images got me all nostalgic about the origin of 2d block coding. [link]
