Classic Literature Converted to QR Codes for No Good Reason

Books2Barcodes
Books2Barcodes is the brainchild of the jokers over at Wonder Tonic. The idea is to take the world's greatest works of literature, such as 'Ulysses' and 'Moby Dick,' and convert them into thousands of QR codes, each of which houses an 800-character chunks of the tome. Point your smartphone with a QR reading app like 'Google Goggles' at the screen, and you've got a tiny fragment of a classic work. Why would anyone want to point their phone at a computer screen to read slivers of literature that could only consume a minute or so of their lives? We're not sure, but Books2Barcodes is an excellent example of what sadistic people with access to modern technology are capable of doing.
