QR codes were used in a marriage proposal
For those of you that think QR codes are dead, think again. QR codes are very much alive when it comes to love.
Guido Villar, a 31-year-old entrepreneur from Buenos Aires, decided to use QR codes to propose to his now wife. Villar set up a route with a web-based QR reader and stuck QR codes throughout the city of Tandil. They were mainly placed in key spots Villar and his fiancée had been throughout their relationship.
As his fiancée went on a QR code scavenger hunt, Villar went into his house and lit over 50 candles. His fiancée was followed the QR code trail and was eventually led back to their house, which also had a QR code on it. Once scanned, it played their song. Last but not least, Villar held a huge QR code sign which, once scanned, revealed the proposal.
She said yes and the couple has now been happily married for two years!

Amazon’s image-recognition app could mean trouble for brick-and-mortar stores
The ability to scan barcodes from our phones has given consumers the power to easily compare prices. Now, mega e-retailer Amazon has made price comparison even more simple.
The Flow app enables shoppers to identify products from their home or the store by simply taking a picture of it. From there, Amazon matches the object to images in their database.
This could be a dangerous tool for brick-and-mortar retailers. Imagine being at a store, seeing something you want and then within seconds, discovering it’s cheaper on Amazon.
By using imaging instead of barcodes, consumers needn’t actually touch the object or look for a barcode. In addition, barcodes have to be scanned one at a time. Flow was coined because of its ability to scan multiple objects at once by waving the phone across them in succession.
While Flow has been around for a few years in standalone apps, it’s now integrated into their mobile shopping app, making mobile purchasing easier than ever before. Flow works on just about every product—just about every product that Amazon sells, that is.
Watch the video below to see Flow in action.
