World’s largest QR code lives in NoDa, created by Hackerspace Charlotte

“If you drive past a scrap yard in Charlotte’s NoDa neighborhood you won’t see it, no matter how hard you look.
There, up on the roof of Southern Resources, are the makings of the world’s largest QR code. On Monday, painters were busy laying down a pattern of black and white squares. The finished product will cover most of the 10,000 square feet of space. It’ll be so big each of the pixels will be at least one square meter. (…)
The code is also big enough to see from satellite imagery, which means it’ll show up when someone looks at Southern Resources on Google Earth or Google Maps.
“Someone sitting at home on their computer can see this bar code, put their phone up to it, and it’ll take them to the website for the project,” said Ryan Stachurski of Hackerspace Charlotte.
His group, a non-profit in NoDa that serves as a venue for innovative projects, is behind the idea. (…)
The painters hope to be finished and to have their world record certified by Guinness on Wednesday.”
