You Can Now Genetate QR Codes Using Wolfram|Alpha






Wolfram|Alpha has made the announcement earlier today they’ve added a QR code generator to their database service. Yet another service that makes W|A a resource that should always be considered to provide answers (not links) to a variety of questions and other info needs.

Each code can have up to  to 7K of textual data embedded into it and it doesn’t have to include a URL.

The blog provides a few examples:

Phone Numbers,

Email Addresses,

Just Plain Text.

Users can also combine the types of data embedded in the code.

To create a QR Code simply enter QR Code + up to  7K of data textual limit we just mentioned into the search box.

That’s it.  The new service is free.
