Facebook Gets 42-foot QR Code on Roof

In honor of Facebook Pages moving to Timeline (we just converted ours), we wanted to showcase the latest barcode innovation at Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, recently called for a “Space Hackatjon,” asking employees to decorate new Facebook headquarters.

Employees headed to the rooftops, literall, and painted a 42-foot wide QR code on the roof that’s visible from space.

Once scanned, the code directs users to a Facebook QR Code Page, which will feature a variety of different fun things. But, you won’t be able to scan it unless you’re in the air, or until it appears on satellite maps.

The crew worked into the morning to complete the QR code, and in order to test it, they strapped a camera to a home-made remote-control helicopter and flew it over the roof!
