Facebook Plans For Inevitable QR Code Space Race

By Gary Cutlack on at

Planning ahead to a time when everyone has a QR code painted on their roof to advertise their services or display Google ads to passing space tourists, Facebook has stuck a massive QR code on the top of one of its Menlo Campus buildings.

The idea is that whenever Google or Microsoft updates their satellite imagery of the area, bored browsers looking for secret military UFO bases will stumble across the 42-foot rooftop QR code, scan it in and see... something.

The Facebook QR code currently points to this empty holding page. It looks like Facebook still can't see the point of QR codes, just like the rest of the world. [Facebook via Venturebeat]
