QR codes

Through the help of some friendfeeders I found a way to figure out what QR codes say online without the aid of a smart phone.

Just put in a URL of an image or copy the image to your computer and upload it to this site:

My next question is along the lines of how a smartphoneless person should interpret QR codes in the physical space?

Should they be easter eggs for only the ‘people in the know’ to detect and use? or should the text equivalent also be a part of the image?

qrcode
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

That being said I really haven’t seen many (any) of these in the wild.
