Street Art, QR Codes and Google Maps

The Voice of the Street

The Voice of the Street have produced this cutting edge website that allows street artists to receive feedback from members of the public.

Artists leave a QR code on their work, members of the public then take a picture of the QR code with their mobile phone and leave a voice message for the artist. I think there could be a huge call for this. I mean who hasn't seen some graffiti and wanted to leave a message for the 'artist'? I just wonder whether most of the comments are going to be what the artists want to hear.

Here's a video explaining how the service works:

We've implemented QR codes at Sunday Morning Rides as well - we use it to link our print, online, and mobile content for GPS motorcycle rides.

iPhone users should try NeoReader, we found it to be the most consistent code reading app.
