Motion QR- multiple sets of data to be blended together into a single graphic code that changes ten times a second.
Cellum Global CEO János Kóka announced a product expected to be in commercial use in early 2014. It is called “Motion QR”. I am doing more research into it now but basically it takes the basic static QR we all know and increases the its capacity to store information. If regular QR is a picture, motion QR is a movie. This product will ensure ID and ticketing “copy and forge proof”. We will soon see these QRs holding:
- higher level of security
- advanced storage capability,
- secure storage of photos,
- transport and event ticketing.
- personalized coupons.
- even electronic ID cards.
- photo IDs
- monthly transport passes
- biometric data,
ALL can be displayed on a smartphone without risk of being copied or forwarded. Check out QuickuRLikes
“The essential property of the Motion QR code is that it can only be issued and sent to the user’s phone by the competent authority – a ticket issuing company, official ID card issuing authority, etc. – with the help of Cellum and its special encryption method,” Inotay explained. “But anyone can check the validity of the digital document with a freely-available reader app. This is in line with how printed passports can be read and checked by anyone, while only the competent authority can issue them. Just like a passport, the code can contain a photo and biometric ID, thus the system includes most features of chip-based ID’ing, while cutting heavily on distribution-related costs, offering a cheaper and simpler alternative. Encoding of the consecutive QR codes in the stream is redundant, highly secure and fault-tolerant. Still, it can be displayed as well as scanned by any smartphone. “
