SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

The open innovation that led to QR codes

Denso-Wave, a subsidiary of the Toyota Group, created the QR (Quick Response) Code back in 1994, and did not seek a patent for it. 

One of the main objectives was to come up with a new barcode that allowed more data to be encoded without increasing the size of existing barcodes. This was achieved by including a second dimension. 

Nokia noticed QR Codes and was the first to implemented a QR Code scanner into Mobile phones. Once mobile devices were able to scan codes easily, the technology began to gain momentum.
