Guests at the Royal Cliff Hotels will soon be able to check-in without having to go through a lot of hassles. The hotel chain is set to introduce a QR Code Express Check-in System for their guests in Thailand.
Starting October 1, 2013, guests can avoid waiting in line and just scan a code that was provided to them during reservation.
Once you have scanned the QR code, a staff member would be able to retrieve your booking details, contact information, benefits, special requests and other things about your reservation. This way, you do not have to wait too long when checking in.
This is the first time that the hotel chain is going to use QR codes. But it would not be the last because plans are underway to use QR codes for their other locations and facilities. From the Fitz Club, the hotel’s fitness centre to Cliff Spa, the company is looking to use technology to improve their guest services.
In Japan, QR Codes Show up on Suits
Aoyama Trading, a leading apparel company in Japan, has announced that they will be sewing up QR codes in the lining of the men’s suits that they sell. These QR codes, when scanned, will take users to a newly created mobile site, the Person’s Club.
The mobile site will give men more information about their suits and other products, as well as special discounts.
Jonathan Brechignac’s QR Code Art
In Brussels, a different kind of art exhibit opened September 27, 2013. The art exhibit features the works of Jonathan Brechignac and it is done entirely with blue Bic pens.
Brechignac uses a 2.5 feet by 4 feet of paper, ultraviolet ink and blue Bic pens to create extensive and elaborate designs. The painstaking work, which took more than eight months to finish, is made to look like a carpet.
At each corner, the artist has included a QR code that resolves to four different Web pages that at best provides a cryptic description of something secret. Perhaps the artist is also going to come up with more content soon.
You have until February 9, 2014 to see the QR coded work of art at the Villa Emapin.
