Sugar Cube QR Codes

Published by at under design,image processing,technology

Here’s the rest of the pictures from the rest of our Sugar Cube QR Code experiment at the A2 Mini Maker Faire. I enlisted the help of a number of 3-10 year olds to glue sugar cubes onto an (almost) properly sized template, and managed to end up with a scannable code! Ed Vielmetti and Jamie Lausch and I then piled a number of additional cubes on top to make a 3D city scape that was still scannable in it’s final form.

This was a proof-of-concept hatched this week to illustrated making QR codes from mixed media. If you are interested in doing something similar, we are organizing an event partnership between a2geeks and North Quad to hold a QR code art show called NQRT in October. Open submissions for QR code scannable art made of things. More details to follow, still in the planning stages. Follow @nqrt for details and developments.

Update: Jamie and Matt from SI did a great job printing the template! What other materials do you think would work?
