A QR Code is a type of two-dimensional bar code which most new camera phones in Japan can read with their camera. It's used for URLs and other information, and is particularly useful for URLs in flyers, catalogues, and other printed material. The QR Code was invented by Denso, who have a QR Code home page.

Docomo, AU and Vodafone phones all read a plain URL in QR code as a link that you can jump to. However, each vendor supports some additional functionality based on how the text in the QR code is formatted. Docomo and Vodafone both support e-mail shortcuts, contact information, and links that can be automatically bookmarked with a title.
