A new company Skanz launched the gadget at the Consumer Electronics Week conference in New York City, hoping these will be a rage among college students and youngsters.

The QR code wristbands allow users to share their digital information like Facebook and Twitter pages, favourite songs, pictures and blog sites with a quick flash of a smart phone.

'QR' stands for two-dimensional quick response, and when an image of a QR code is captured by a quick-response scanner or mobile phone camera, the user's device is directed to a website.

In Skanz's case, it would be linked to somebody's personal information that is stored on the company's website.

By accessing Skanz.com, the users can create and design their personal scan site and add any information that they want to share.

"A college guy may meet a cute girl and instead of swapping information, a quick flash of your QR Code will give them access to all the information they need to stay in touch," Live Science quoted a company spokesperson as telling the TechNewsDaily.

The multi-coloured wristbands are deemed to become a fashion statement and revolutionise the way we exchange contact information.
