BeOS & Derivatives Michael Lotz added code to generate QR-code for the KDL (Kernel Debug Land) ouput (which pops up when the kernel crashes). No more blurry photos with debug output, but a QR code which decodes to the clear-text KDL debug output. Here's one of the relevant commits, an example showing a QR code, and text from decoded sample QR code.

WTF IS THIS SHIT

I LOL'd. ^_^

It's just an extra feature to aid in the process of reporting bugs when the kernel crashes. The old method of taking a screenshot using a camera still works fine.

As for me, I don't have a smart phone ;) but I also haven't seen Haiku crash in a long long time on my computer. ;)
