World's Largest QR Code

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.

Who said QR Codes are dead?

    Here was one of the runner ups.

    Skanz, a QR code social networking service, created a 10,000 square feet QR Code on the Wall Stadium Speedway, a racetrack in New Jersey.

    They created this huge QR code using 80 gallons of black and white paint. The QR code can be scanned from 2 miles above the surface.

    To show that the QR code is fully functional, they called in professional skydivers to jump from an airplane and scan the code from the skies.

    People can also scan the QR code from a video. The code links to a raffle to win tickets to Kanye West and Jay-Z's “Watch the Throne” concert. Unlike the QR code from Hackerspace, this code was temporary and has since been removed.

    “We wanted a viral way to build consumer awareness and demonstrate the value and usefulness of QR codes,” Tammy Lewis, CMO of Skanz, said.

    Nice. I thought the rooftop QR Codes were an interesting twist back when I heard of those, but these take it to a whole new level.
