1,300 Taiwanese have created a human QR Code in an event to promote Taiwan to the world.
The project is cashing in the increasing usage of smartphones.
QR Codes are used to direct people to videos, social media, additional information and websites in general.
The human QR Code was highlighted by a blue “Hi” in the middle, involving 1,370 people with umbrellas on the Taipei City Hall square.
There are many other ways to promote Taiwan, but the organizers have chosen QR Codes, which are a special way to do so, a spokesperson have stated.
As long as users with smartphones take a scan of the QR Code, they will be linked to the Sayling Wen Cultural & Educational Foundation website where various events are shown and will be updated continuously.
EVA Air and bicycle manufacturer and staff members from dozen others Taiwan companies have taken part in the event.
