Our current research project is on the ability of cell phones to scan designer QR Codes (QR Codes with images in them or where they have been modified to be more artistic). Our survey is open to everyone who has a cell phone. If you want to take it, the link is http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QRCode_Research.
