It’s safe to say that QR codes are dead, and I couldn’t be happier (I have a QR code voodoo doll at home). However, I do find Blippar to be intriguing. What’s Blippar? Like QR Codes, it’s an app that involves scanning but without the hideous imagery. The cool thing about Blippar is that it can transform static ads/products into interactive objects via augmented reality. Imagine the creative possibilities people!
