What’s this weird bar code thingy?

You’ve probably seen one of these on your kits and are maybe wondering what it’s for.

It’s called a QR code and you scan it with your smart phone or tablet and it will take you to a website URL.

Some smart phones have an app already installed. For others you will have to install one.

I’m using one called Quick Scan. It has annoying ads when I use the app directly but with it installed on my phone it will recognize QR codes while in photo taking mode and the link with drop down as a notification.

Which is super handy.

It’s my effort to reduce the amount of paper we are using while doing these projects. Instead of writing a document and printing out pages for all of you I’m not writing a blog post and adding photos and videos alongside the instructions.
