Greetings, friends! As we continue to feverishly plan for convention, we’re kicking around loads of ideas to keep everyone who’s not able to attend engaged and interested. Basically, we want to bring as much of the convention as we can TO YOU!
One of the things we will be doing at the convention this year is a QR Code Scavenger Hunt! Attendees may pair up, if they don’t have their own smartphone, and the very first clue will be provided that hints at where the location of the next QR Code is hidden. Once all QR Codes are collected and scanned, a secret message will be revealed… but first contestants will have to unscramble it! Sound like fun?
One of the things we can do to parallel this fun, so you can ALL participate, attendee or not, is to have a VIRTUAL QR Code Scavenger Hunt across the web! I know what some of you are thinking: But I don’t have a smartphone! That is a perfectly reasonable concern and objection. But guess what: We’ve found an app that can be downloaded to your computer that will read QR Codes ! The only thing is you’ll need a Webcam. And the good news is that if you have a laptop, you probably already have a webcam.
For more information on QR Codes, check out our facebook post we wrote to get people excited about this new technology. It also includes a list of different apps for use on your smartphone, and a ‘test’ QR Code to get you geared up.
So, your mission, if you choose to accept, is this: We’d give the clues not all at once, but throughout the whole weekend. The clues will be tricky, and will lead you to where in the world wide web you’ll find the next QR Code. Of course there will be a prize involved, and the winner would be the first one to complete the mission of finding all QR codes, and possibly solving a jumbled phrase or the like.
