Bernhard Hopfengärtner

In this modern age everything either has a barcode, a smartcode or is identifiable through google goggles.  Artist Bernhard Hopfengärtner mowed a 160 x 160 meter semacode in a wheat field in the land of Thuringia.  The code consists of 18 x 18 bright and dark squares producing the decoded phrase, “Hello, World!”  Completed in 2006, Hopfengärtner realized his dream when during an arial flight Google added it to their Google Earth repertoire.  Pretty awesome, bring on the robot revolution!
