Egg Box QR Code Shows the Hens That Laid Them

Imagine you are in the supermarket and you are selecting a box of eggs. On one brand’s egg box is a QR Code and intrigued you wave your mobile phone over the code. Within seconds you are viewing a webcam of the very chickens and their friends that laid those eggs! It’s happening right now in Iwaki, Japan where the Abukuma chicken farm has recently installed a webcam in one of their chicken coops. The webcam is only available from 9:00am to 17:00pm JST (UT+9:00).
