About 2D Barcode Technology:
A 2D barcode can be viewed in similar terms as a Universal Product Code (UPC), except UPCs can only represent numbers. 2D barcodes can be used to represent text, web addresses and other data. Newer smartphones now include the scanning software necessary to take advantage of this technology, while a quick application download will integrate with older smartphones to enable the functionality. Once the software is on a phone, the user simply aims the camera phone at a 2D barcode, and the smartphone scans the code.
