Just Another Seven Acre Large QR Code

Via TechSpot:

Kraay Family Farm, a Canadian-based grower nestled near the town of Lacombe, has set the world’s record for creating the largest QR code ever made. If that weren’t enough, what makes this QR code even more special is its composition: farmers carved out the QR code from a gigantic corn field. The Minecraftian feat covers 7 acres or about 95,000 square feet and incidentally doubles as the largest corn maze on record…

…When Kraay was asked about how he came up with the idea, he told Canadian television journalists, “I was just relaxing, reading a magazine and saw a whole bunch of QR codes and I thought, you know, it looked a whole lot like a maze I wonder if we can make one”.

And yes, it supposedly works. And yes, the Guinness Book of World Records does have a category for world’s largest QR code. And yes, this is it.

So now you know. You can even visit if you happen to find yourself near Lancombe, Alberta.
