    It's known as a 'QR code'. You scan it using the bar code scanner and if its for an app it will take you to it in the marketplace instead of having to search for it. They can also be used for websites.

    CLICK here to see what Wiki says about it.

    Go to the Market and download "Barcode Scanner". After that app is installed, you can use that app to scan the QR Codes. Cool stuff. :cool:
