A family in Canada has claimed a Guinness World Record for growing the world’s largest QR code in their corn field.
The family in Lacombe, in Alberta rushed to let people know a little something of their hometown. The Kraays have already become famous for growing corn mazes every year. However this time they’ve made it into history.
The family says they’ve just received a certificate from Guinness confirming that their QR code-shaped corn maze is the largest functioning one in the world, The Canadian Press reports.
It spans 29,000 square meters and can be scanned with a smart phone, just like any other, except one needs to fly over it to decode the data.
The QR code directs you to the family’s maze website. To prove that it works, the family took a helicopter ride over the maze and made a video of decoding their high-end creation with a smart phone.
“It was something that we didn't think would happen. There were a lot of little things we had to do and Guinness is pretty picky with how you collect your evidence. We were a little bit on edge on whether it would come through so we were very relieved and very excited,” Rachel Kraay told CTV-News.
They Kraay family have been creating corn mazes for 13 years and charge those interested in chancing their way through them. Their previous creations include a map of Alberta, a map of Canada, and team logos of two of Alberta’s ice hockey teams.
