You're gonna need a bigger phone.

The Kraay family of Lacombe, Alberta, Canada, turned their farm's annual corn maze into an ode to Quick Response code technology, earning a Guinness World Record for the largest QR code, according to ABC News.

The Kraay family has been crafting tremendous corn mazes since 1999; past mazes include a tribute to Canadian Paralympian Rick Hansen and a depiction of the Canadian dollar.

The inspiration for the QR code maze came spontaneously. “I was just relaxing, reading a magazine and saw a whole bunch of QR codes and I thought, you know, it looked a whole lot like a maze, I wonder if we can make one,” Rachel Kraay told CTV News.

The QR code takes up 7 acres of the 15-acre maze. Despite some initial trouble, after the Kraays darkened some of the maze's paths, it now functions just like a normal QR code.

Designed for use with cell phones, QR codes, like bar codes, store information and when scanned offer users more information on a given product or company. Scanning a photo of the corn maze code leads users to the Kraay Family Farm website.

According to Digital Journal, the Kraay family has planned a party on September 15th to celebrate the world record.
