Canadian field scoops QR code world record
Nothing corny about it.
A field of maize in Alberta, Canada has earned the unusual honour of claiming the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest QR code. The pattern has been cut into the Kraay family’s farm and measures approximately 29,000 square metres. The code directs people to the website for their mazes. In order to prove that it worked a helicopter was flown over the field and the code was scanned with a smartphone.


The family’s farm has been famous for its annual corn mazes, but this takes it to a whole new level. The Kraay family has grown corn mazes for the past 13 years. Visitors are able to visit and pay to try to navigate their way through a maze. One field designed in 2011 was a tribute to the 25th Anniversary of Rick Hansen's Man in Motion World Tour for spinal cord research.


If you’d like to find out more about the Kraay family farm, but don’t fancy flying over a field in a helicopter and holding your smartphone out, you can visit its website here.
