LZRTAG is a free Android app that lets you generate QR codes associated with uploaded images — mostly animated .gif images. The codes can be printed out and placed on walls and other surfaces. When scanned with the Android app, the codes call up the associated image and display it in an augmented reality on your phone.Potentially any areas where QR codes could be placed can now become virtual photo galleries, accessible to anyone with a smartphone. Cool. The display possibilities are endless. As are the possibilities for augmented reality photo art.
This could also be a novel concept for photographers displaying work in galleries: instead of physical prints on walls, photographers could potentially display digital work in augmented reality.
