Trust China to come up with quirky uses of QR Codes. In a record-breaking feat, China has created the biggest human formation of a QR Code. The event took place in Zhengzhou, Central China’s Henan province.
Human-QR Code Formation
On Nov 1, 2017, more than 2,500 students from Sias International College came together to created a peach-and-white colored QR Code. Didi Express collaborated with students for this event.
The QR Code was created using umbrellas that helped students form a pattern. The QR Code measured approximately 51-meter-long and 51-meter-wide.
The giant-human QR Code was completely scannable. The students received a 1 million Yuan bonus from Didi-Express when the QR Code was scanned. Students were awarded World Record certifications after the QR Code was scanned.
It is unclear what information this QR Code links to.
QR Code with Trees
This isn’t the first time that China has created QR Codes of this size. In a bid to attract tourists, Chinese authorities planted 1,30,000 Juniper trees to form a QR Code in Xilinshui village, Baoding, South China. This QR Codes is spread in an area of over 12 acres.
On scanning this QR Code, users can view Xilinshui’s official Chinese tourism page on WeChat.
