Creating more colorful and stylistic QR codes

Simplified version of extreme halftone version presented in earlier post. Love the aesthetics of this piece.

Why are so many QR codes in black and white.  Although I fully understand the utility of codes to be functional in form, what we believe in at QR Arts is to balance the technical with the aesthetic values that can be achieved with QR codes.  Make them pop, and stand out.

WE believe in making QR codes as unique and valuable as the content that you are linking them to.  Lets create a better user experience.

RGB Concept QR mark

RGB separations on purpose

QR marks analyze the contrast between black and white. However, all our devices are setup to read RGB – why not exploit this to make better QR marks?

RGB builds to white (odd, but yes, so .. I guess my illustration is wrong ), but the lack of build would indicate black.

So, if we could engineer the camera class to separate out the colors, it could enable 3 times more data if you were overlapping 3 different codes!  I feel like this is a really big idea.

Please comment or give feedback if you know this is possible, or if you heard of anyone else doing research on this theory.

Thx. -pd
