QR codes are popping up at restaurants around the world as business owners consider new ways to keep diners and employees safe. Acceptance of QR codes has waxed and waned over the years but some tech CEOs think this is the moment for diners and restaurants to embrace them. Tech companies like BentoBox and Thanx have created their own QR code-based systems for restaurants.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. "Order from your phone," the cheerful table card reads. "Open your camera app and hold it over this code." In the center of the card: a boxy, black-and-white QR code.The maligned QR code — short for quick response — has made its pandemic-era comeback at restaurants across America and around the world. During its summer burger and wine bar pop-up, guests at the world-renowned Noma in Copenhagen used QR codes affixed to tables to access the menu. At Holybelly in Paris, servers wear the codes on pins attached to their aprons. In the U.S., codes are popping up affixed to restaurant tables from casual Waffle House locations to more upscale independents, like the outdoor tables at San Francisco's Mister Jiu's. The codes trace their history back to the '90s, though acceptance has waxed and waned over the years. During a global pandemic amid fears of shared surfaces and prolonged face-to-face interaction, it's become a way for guests to access menus, place an order, and pay their bill. Tech companies are rethinking the QR code in our no-touch reality. Thanx, a company that provides digital ordering and helps businesses manage customer relationships, just added new technology that connects all the dots: menus, ordering, and payment. Guests scan a code at their table, read the menu, order, and pay directly from their phones. Servers deliver food from the kitchen, reducing most of the touchpoints we need to avoid right now. No face-to-face ordering, no credit card-taking, no check signing. Read more: Retail startup Thanx created a smart QR code that's helping restaurants up their digital game at a crucial time. The CEO says the tech 'will become the new normal well beyond COVID.' "The good news is that QR code technology has advanced a lot from where it used to be. You can literally use the camera app on your phone to scan a QR code, you don't need a separate app," said Thanx CEO Zach Goldstein. Customers don't have to download an app or log in to use the codes, though they can opt into restaurant loyalty programs or save their payment information. BentoBox, a company that designs and builds restaurant websites. released its own version of order-at-the-table last week. As part of the offering, the company sends free printed tabletop cards including a QR code to restaurants. Krystle Mobayeni, CEO of BentoBox, and also a designer, says her team spent a lot of time considering how to make the codes fall in line with the aesthetic standards and high bar they have for design. "Design can transform a product or experience, and we've approached this in the same way we've approached our websites, Mobayeni said. "We have unique templates for these QR codes. They have customizable colors and there's just the right elements to be able to customize. There's these main and secondary colors that can be adjusted, almost like a brand system." The company recommends cardholders ("They're pretty classy — marble, chrome," said Mobyayeni) and includes a lookbook of other ideas for QR code display —printed on salt and pepper shakers, embossed on a table, or a larger display for standing and ordering at a distance — though doesn't yet offer those options itself. For all the design attention they're getting, QR codes are still pretty basic technology, and anyone can use a tool to generate one for free. While some restaurants use tech like Thanx or BentoBox to incorporate ordering and payment, others use QR codes simply to replace shared paper menus. "It's almost a joke that these things have become such a critical part of our lives and our restaurants' lives. It's very ironic," said Mobayeni. "The thing that's actually driving that is they're a universal good piece of utility."Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why thoroughbred horse semen is the world's most expensive liquid

This charging time is possible by using a 900-volt charger with a peak charging rate of over 300 kW.

Quibi ramped up TV advertising and used YouTube more starting in June, as it readied its second wave of programming and tried to win over subscribers, new data shared with Business Insider showed. The mobile-video service used its official YouTube account more to promote its original programming, and spent more on TV ads, according to data from Tubular Labs, which tracks social-media activity, and ad-tracking firm iSpot.tv.  The ad push comes as Quibi has been retooling its platform and approach following a rough start in April, including adding features like the ability to screenshot video within the app and cast video to TVs. In June, Quibi started posting more clips of its original programming to its official YouTube page, the Tubular Labs data showed. From April 1 through the end of May 2020, Quibi uploaded 51 videos to its official YouTube account, for an average of 0.84 videos per day. Between June 1 and August 10, Quibi uploaded 92 videos, averaging 1.39 per day. Many of the recent videos were trailers for or clips of Quibi originals, such as "Most Dangerous Games," "Dummy," and "The Fugitive," the data showed. Three of Quibi's YouTube videos posted since June 1 topped 10 million views. Quibi has put more marketing muscle into promoting its shows since its launch. Before that, the platform had emphasized its overall brand more in ads that explained the concept of "quick bites." Quibi recently inked a deal with a blogger network that's writing about its shows, as Business Insider previously reported. And it is spending more on TV ads for its shows, too, according to iSpot.tv, which estimates the media value of ads that air on national TV. From July 1 to August 5, Quibi aired TV ads worth an estimated $10 million, and generated 469 million impressions, according to iSpot.tv.  Quibi aired another $40.8 million worth of TV ads through June, making it the sixth-largest advertiser among streaming-TV services during the first half of the year. That period included Quibi's Super Bowl campaign and launch push. The data also showed Quibi pulled back on ad spending in May and June, after its initial launch period and as other major advertisers were pausing campaigns because of the coronavirus pandemic. It started spending heavily on TV ads again in July and early August, as it rolled out its second wave of original programming. The ads promoted shows including "Die Hart," "The Fugitive," and "Most Dangerous Game."
