This is officially the world's largest QR code. Carved into a field of maze in Alberta, Canada, it measures 28,760 square metres and links to the Kraay Family Farm website.

Hopefully this is some kind of unfunny joke, but there is now a line of QR code clothing. Yeah, that's right. QRTribe makes hoodies, purses and t-shirts printed with these ugly things that no one uses. When you scan them, they'll take you to a page that has links to all of your social media profiles. Eureka!
I usually hate QR codes. They're ugly technology needlessly solving non-problems in a flawed attempt to be futuristic. Even worse, people plaster them on the dumbest things: bikinis, burqas, butts, etc. And now, setting a new low, they've painted a whole town with QR codes. There are literally over a 1000 QR codes scarring this entire town.
For whatever reason, QR codes still haven't died. Near Field Communication is far superior in every conceivable way, yet it's only in a small handful of phones. And apparently I'm not the only one angry about the nine lives of this insufferable technology, because some people have dedicated a Tumblr to its terribleness.
Picture this: You're sitting in La Premiere, watching the latest superhero blockbuster on the big screen. Just as the superhero in question is about to be pummelled by the bad guy, you have a sudden and irrepressible craving for a choc top. Do you leave the movie to satisfy your hunger, missing the key action sequence? Or do you suffer through until the movie shifts to the unavoidable romance subplot? The answer is neither, thanks to a new technology being trialled by Mastercard, Commbank and Hoyts.
