In February 18, 2012, St-Janvier de Mirabel by Air Fest set a new record by making the biggest QR code in the world. Air Fest is a company in Quebec, Canada that manages soccer schools and day camps for kids. Although still unofficial, with a size of 15,625 square feet, this giant QR code beats all previous world attempts. It was created by over 400 people, with facilitators of the AEF, campers and parents of the AEF and friends. The QR code was made with 5 x 5 black panels. The QR code is about as big as 5 tennis courts or 50 parked cars or one Olympic-sized swimming pool.
This challenge was originally proposed by Cyclone Design Communications and marked the start of the registration drive for the 2012 day camps themed "One was larger than life". The QR Code is encoded in byte and goes to the mobile website Mission QR - Air en Fête 2012 - #QR2012 - Le plus gros code QR au monde! The bigest QR code ever!, where people can find out more about the code and its construction. They can also find out more about the company and why they decided to create the world's largest QR code.
This huge QR code can only be scanned from 1,000 feet above the ground, so at 11:38 am Air Fest flew a helicopter above to take photos and video of the code. "It works 10 out of 10!" Valérie Delorme of Hélibellule announced from his Bell-222 aircraft, to the delight of the participants.
