QR Code Fiesta!

On Tuesday, December 21 at 11 am, a QR code-based scavenger hunt will begin in New York City, with the ultimate find being a Ford Fiesta. Two companies, Neatorama and metal_floss will be hosting the hunt, tweeting a precise location at 10:30 am.

When participants arrive at the first location, they will have to scan a QR code in order to obtain a clue for the next location. In total, there will be four QR code stopping points along the way, with monitors standing by each of the codes to ensure they are not defaced or ruined in any way, to keep the game fair for the next participant.

While only one person will be able to win the Ford Fiesta, there will also be random prizes distributed by the monitors throughout the event.

So, if you’re going to be in NYC on the 21st, break out your favorite QR code reader and join the hunt! Hope to hear from someone as to how the contest went via Facebook or Twitter!
