BlackBerry QR Code Ad

BlackBerry have been running a rather sweet TV ad in India in which a young girl surreptitiously shows a young boy her QR Coded bracelet so that he can add her to his BlackBerry Messenger service (video below). The ad agency is hoping that no one will notice that the code on her bracelet is in fact a Micro QR Code, normally reserved for very small amounts of data such as the ID of a printed circuit board or an electronic component. Micro QR Code cannot be scanned successfully by a standard QR Code reader and as far as I know there are no Micro QR Code readers available for the BlackBerry or in fact for any other smart phone.

  1. I still have never been able to scan a micro QR code. What app currently offers this capability ?
