QR codes are pretty amazing, and we use them a lot on the Foxborough History Trail's map. ("QR" is short for Quick Response.) They work a lot like the bar codes that you might have seen on items at your local grocery - except you can use your cell phone to scan them.
Now that you know what they are, you will see them on many everyday things like on a map, sign, poster, etc. They can be used for all sorts of things, but the Foxborough History Trail uses them to link back to articles on our website.
