Giant QR code building offers new kind of augmented reality

QR codes are still quite prevalent within Japan but if a new design technology experiment is any indication, the country may become one of the first augmented reality societies.

The N Building, located in the Tachikawa district has been layered with a giant QR code that, when viewed through an iPhone using special software, takes you to a designated website that displays the building's store information. You can see video of the N Building and the code magic in action here.
