I'm using the QR code scanner sample for Android. Instead of the static sample images, I want to display the rendered cube on top of a QR code that contains a specific text. Is this possible?

QRCode is designed for data encoding, not for visual recognition and tracking.

Although you can use any image as target, QRCode may not be recognized by the tracker.

But, when you have the freedom to use more colorful images, why do you still need QRCode, which is designed for machines?

I wanted to use QR codes since they contain some text about which 3D model I want to load on top of it. So if I had a flat surface with multiple QR codes, I can see all the different objects.

I see Targets have meta data. I'll try to use those. Thanks.
