Footballers Get QR Codes Shaved into Their Heads


Some footballers in the UK are getting QR codes shaved into the back of their heads. The whole starting line-up of the Bromley FC club will have these QR codes in their hair for a game today, thanks to celebrity stylist Daniel Johnson.

The club is undergoing the unusual head-shaving to promote UK online betting site Betfair. The team is an underdog in their upcoming match, so every little bit of attention helps, I suppose.

I’m a bit at a loss how people will be able to scan these photos though, unless they have telephoto lenses on their smartphones. No matter what the original purpose was, it’s certainly an unusual place to find QR codes. At least these ones are temporary, unlike those QR code tattoos.

    TxTImpact has Mobile QR codes or 2D code are codes in the same way as ordinary barcodes are, but their matrix structure can hold more
    information. The codes are also mobile in the sense that you can use the camera on your mobile device to scan and decode them. You can
    convert a web address (URL), a phone number, an email address or plain text into a mobile code. After scanning it with your camera phone,
    you will have instant access to the encoded information straight on the display of your mobile device.
