(scan the code above for a secret message from Kasim)

So many of our kids have been intrigued & inspired by our recent QR Code adventures! Don't believe me?

One of our ace MHTV Reporters, 7th grader Kasim, on his own found this fascinating article & wrote a news story on it for our show today & he's our guest blogger!

Mega Introduces Mobile Technology

"In 2011 Mega Bloks will launch new QR codes on its product packaging and print advertising. Spanning its boys and collectors’ portfolio, the codes will first appear on Dragons Universe, Halo and the new Blok Squad range, and will then be rolled out to additional ranges.

The QR (quick response) codes allow consumers to instantly view product information, images, videos and instructions on a mobile page. This can be achieved by downloading a QR Code reader on a smart phone, which can then read the QR code on pack or in print.
In addition to new QR technology, Mega plans to refresh its microsites with a number of new innovative features. Kids will be able to view new 360° rotating product views, which explode showcasing the product build." - by Katie Roberts

In touch with one of the latest trends in media, Mega will also be introducing 30-second product videos onto its product pages bringing all the features of the product to life.
Here at MHMS we are planning to use these QR codes to send URLs and many other texts to use for educational purpose - Kasim
