Meet what is claimed to be the first "location based print ad." Spunds fancy, don't it?

Ah, but it's just a regular print ad, where the QR code printed in it gives you directions to the nearest café (based on where you are according to your phones GPS), rather than a link to a website where you can look that up. It's like, someone actually found a use for that QR thingie. Now if I could only be bothered to scan it.

Cafe Joe's print ad is a location based ad. By scanning a QR code the reader gets the directions to the nearest Cafe Joe’s branch, where he can enjoy a free cup of coffee while reading his magazine.
