We see QR codes everywhere these days, from advertisements to print cartridge packaging. However, you may soon find yourself biting into a QR-coded cookie.

Meet the Qkie.

The brainchild of a German food company, Juchem Gruppe, and DFKI, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, the Qkie's QR code can be scanned to open up a link to a Web site, a love note, or even a party invitation (as seen in the video below).

Tech you can eat. Qkies

You can order a box of Qkie mix and 20 QR codes printed on edible paper for 6.90 euros ($9.50). After scanning the QR code, the cookie can be consumed. Since it seems like quite a lot of work compared with sending an Evite, we're guessing the Qkie is targeted at tech-savvy foodies who aim to impress.

Do these QR-coded cookies give you some food for thought about making new business cards?
