ASCII Art in QR Codes


There are plenty of QR generators which will render the code in ASCII, but I wanted to try something a little different. Is it possible to hide ASCII Art into QR Codes?

Errr.... yes... It's pretty damn simple! I was surprised I couldn't find anyone else doing this.

Becomes:

Which, when scanned, renders as:

Now, there are limits as to what you can put into a QR code - about 4,000 characters. Different devices have different screen widths, which limits the ability to include fully featured ASCII Artworks like the Mona Lisa
