"Ten times smaller than barcodes, Bokodes’ low-cost optical design can be read from as far as 4 meters away, much farther than barcodes, by taking an out-of-focus photo with any off-the-shelf
camera." Love for stuff like this to catch on, however compared to QR codes, these are much more difficult to produce than barcodes in that you can't just print them out and they require changes
to the photography technique (must be out of focus) rather than just analyzing any photograph of a barcode. They seem to be solving slightly different problems.
