High-Tech QR code to get AR ashes on Ash Wednesday

Tommy Noonan at Amalgamated made the QR code that looks like Jesus in this high-tech Augmented Reality celebration of Lent. Those who couldn't make it to the nearest priest with sooty fingers yesterday could just stick the QR code on their forehead, point their webcamera at themselves, and pick the ash patterns they liked.
"When you can't make it to church on Ash Wednesday, they you can get them virtually."

High-tech religion. So very cyberpunk. Oh god, I just said cyberpunk. I'm old.
