Custom Animated QR codes

My research question for this morning.  “Can you animate QR codes, and still have them scan”?  Yes.

Although QR codes have been mainly looking at 2dbarcodes for print media, QR arts is looking at how they can be used on screen.  I am not saying that QR codes should be the same as “flashing” banner ads, but there is room for subtle graphic hints that may draw a customer in.  This screen test was to further investigate the possibilities of using QR codes for video and web. Content is not 1 dimensional, why should we limit QR codes to the physics of paper.

      @ Erik- Thanks for sharing. I will have to translate the site from Japanese, but I like what they are doing. Looks like they have an unscannable animation intro, and then it rotates the same loop.

      I wonder if its automated like the other generators, or hand built?

      Looks like I have a lot to learn on this subject still.
