Animated QR Code and Fez Sky Island

Could QR Code embed animation within it’s limit of 2,953 bytes?

The current version of Barcode Scanner for Android scanner does not work with the data URI.

QR-Code bots

While searching for the answer I did find an awesome QR-Code bots visualization.

Sky Island

As we already are into blocks I here is a game which applies some cool affine transforms on its isometric world.

In the game the player can rotate the world in 3D just like in Fez.  On my Samsung Galaxy S the game is somewhat slow tho.

  1. When will this game concept be ported to WebGL or Molehill?
  2. Will an affine transform tetris emerge?
  3. With affine transforms could Minecraft be transformed into a Minecraft 2D – a digging game like Gem Miner for Android?
  4. When will Fez run on Android?

More animated gifs

PS. For a while I have been downloading such cool animations via Google Reader. Yet it took me a while to find the real source feeds for them.

  1. the animated qr code is interesting, but you could have optimized that gif allot more, I got it down to ~414 bytes

    I made a couple animated gif barcodes a while ago on my blog too (one is in color!!)
    i’v noticed the barcode scanner for the iphone doesn’t handle data urls correctly either, :/ kind of disappointing most people don’t like the Idea of storing data /on/ the barcode itself…
    very neat to see I’m not the only one who tried this though! 😀
