Freaking out (not only) mobile app users – xkcd: QR Code

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/07/12

xkcd: QR Code titled “Remember, the installer is watching the camera for the checksum it generated, so you have to scan it using your own phone” is not only freaking out mobile app users (:

The fun starts when putting http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/qr_code.png through a QR decoder

The QR paradox: is an infinite loop impossible?

Yeah, yeah 1237: QR Code – explain xkcd got it too: ZXing will parse http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/qr_code.png fine, then gets you to http://xkcd.com/1237/scan/ which contains http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/qr_code_loop.png which parses fine.
