Have you ever wondered how barcodes, especially QR codes, work? Famed inventor Denso Wave invented the jūji-kanji – an under-glass electronic scanning sensor that can recognize any number of linear barcodes at once. This technology is best known for its use in the optical character recognition of Japanese texts.
They appear at a rapid rate. They are being used for everything from simple product identification to creating ads, coupons, and guiding people to the nearest store selling a particular product. They can even be used to pay for products and services right from your phone — just scan the code when you’re ready to pay.
It only takes a few seconds. The QR code is unique to you, so it is impossible for anyone else to use the code and pay for other items. Your information is encrypted with industry-standard security protocols for mobile payments, and transactions are monitored 24/7 for fraudulent or suspicious activity. Finally, you can pay on the go with your smartphone using an app that you probably already have on your phone.
