From time to time, you come across interesting images on the web, and sometimes, it’s not easy to figure out nthe story behind them. I spotted this QR Code Super Mario on this Spanish website, and which led me to find out it was created by one Mr. Kuwahara. Unfortunately, that’s about where the story ends.
In his original post, Kuwahara simply says “No you can’t scan this :D.” Perhaps the juxtaposition between QR codes and 8-bit gaming imply that QR codes are already a relic of the past. Or maybe he created it for fun. Let’s go with that.
It does make you wonder if it would be possible to create a QR code with an image like this that could still be scanned.
