QR Code and URL shortening comes to World Martial Arts Academy

QR Code is short for Quick Response Code, first invented in Japan in 1994 for the Toyota Industry to track parts during automobile manufacturing. The QR code has fast moved into the consumer marketplace as a way of providing the consumer with fast and accurate information and as a means to advertise and product research.
As consumers, we are used to seeing 1 demensional bar codes on food packaging but with the QR Code it is detected as a 2 demensional digital image by a semi conductor image sensor and essentially converted into binary code which has the capacity to hold massive amounts of information for consumers. The use of QR Codes is free of any license so anyone may use them, generate and encrypt their own unique code. Anyone with a smart phone can scan a QR into the phone through their camera and once scanned the unique code will instantly give the you all the information regarding a product or service.
WMAAP has their own QR Code, once scanned by any smart phone, you will be directed to World Martial Arts Academy of Pennsylvania’s Web-site for all the latest updates regarding practice, schedules, tournaments and photos.
We may even use it for special promotions, and offers, but it’s primary use will be to continue our advocacy for the community service projects that take place within our community such as blood drives, food collections, toys for tots and demonstrations.
If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to drop us a note.
