How QR codes Are Helping Locate Things Lost
QR codes, so far have been used primarily in the advertising market. A lot of companies are using these codes to generate a profit. They are doing quite well of that too but what if QR codes could help on a more personal level for an everyday person? What if QR codes could help locate your keys, lost luggage or even you pet?
Well fret no more Fido, because there is a company called, Dynotag, that is working to do just that. The anxiety felt when something is lost is horrible, your go through the motions of trying to retrace your steps, but when something like your pet, a member of the family goes missing it can be traumatic. So, Dynotag is working on making sure you can take items as well as your dog’s collar, with a QR code. That QR code can be filled with as much information as you want it to. From your name and telephone number to a detailed website about your pet just in case they get lost. Dynotag is even working on technology that can notify you if someone has read the tag to make it that much easier to find your lost pet.
The same basic idea goes for your luggage too. There are few things that are more frustrating then when you are on vacation and your airline has “misplaced” your luggage. So, you are in an unfamiliar place with no luggage, what do you do? Well, before you even pack for your trip you should get a QR code tag and place it on your luggage. Like with the dog tags, it can offer information about you or direct you to a site with a detailed analysis of the contents of your precious cargo. QR codes can also enable GPS to find out where the luggage actually is as apposed to waiting for someone to scan the code and alert you of its whereabouts.
QR codes are being used in a variety of ways but the ways that they can help people are growing. Like what was said about being able to find your pet or your luggage. Hopefully more ways will be thought up for QR codes. What is helpful is that you can start generating your own codes and maybe get a little create with what they can do for you.
