If you want to have some fun while promoting something and creating quite a bit of stir around the world, it would be to simply gather some thousands of people, gather together to form a human QR Code and get noticed. This is precisely what the non-profit Sayling Wen Cultural and Educational Foundation told news sites about their effort in creating a QR Code using umbrellas. The QR Code took one thousand three hundred and sixty nine people to make.
The amazing QR Code was made downtown at the Taipei City Hall, said the organizers, and representatives said that ‘yes’, there were many ways to promote a country and its culture but they chose the QR Code because they believed that as long as there were smartphones around, technology seems to be the way to go. With a smartphone, users from all around the world can take a photo of the code and be led to the foundation’s website whereby many colorful, eventful and fun events that are held in Taiwan are highlighted.
People who participated in the QR Code-making effort are mainly people behind the cultural foundation but it was reported that it received the support from many different other companies and individuals as well, for example, EVA Air and Giant (a relatively large and well-known bicycle-making company) took part in making the QR Code dream come true.
What is really fun about the QR Code event is that they made a cute, blue ‘Hi’ in the middle of the QR Code and at the bottom, they signed it off with a ‘from TAIWAN’.
Obviously, this effort shows that Taiwan is really set on getting more attention from the rest of the world and they would like others to come see what the country and their culture has to offer. I would have to say that yes, you have got our attention, Taiwan.
If you want to find out more about their effort, head over to their website, www.taiwansayhi.com. Let’s not be technical and point out a grammatical error here. Anyway, here is a short clip from Youtube showing and promoting the site and the QR Code. Wish they had a longer version. If you happen to find a longer video, please feel free to post it up in the comments section.
