Now there is a more visual replacement for the QR code called Mobile Visual Search (MVS). This technology allows the user to take a picture of a product or log and you will receive information on that image within seconds. With MVS you are connecting with an image instead of a strange blob of code, its more human and less abstract. Also, MVS is more secure than the QR code and limits your risk of downloading a trojan or virus because you are looking at an actual image and not an imbedded code field.
