Google goo.gl URL Shortener QR Code Creator Tested with Google Goggles

Here’s a neat trick for Google’s new goo.gl URL shortener from TechCrunch.

Goo.gl’s Awesome Easter Egg To Instantly Turn Any Link Into A QR Code

Here’s what I did:

- Pointed my web browser at: http://goo.gl/
- Pasted ThinkMobile’s URL into the goo.gl text box
- Press shorten
- Pasted the resulting short URL and added a “.qr” to its end: http://goo.gl/QH5C.qr

You can see the resulting QR code above.

I tested the QR code by using Google Googles on my Droid to scan the QR code. It correctly interpreted the short URL. Clicking it took me to this ThinkMobile blog in the Droid’s web browser. Nice!
