That's a new business idea, a camera module with built-in QR reader
firmware, with UART output; could be interesting for some integrators. Oh,
wait!! That already exists!![1]

A cooperative selector construction could involve a registry.

You can always opt to hash some data (e.g. the url) and get something
shorter. Also in my jsfiddle I've put 100ms between bits, but you can try
to lower it to 33ms (most of monitors works on 60hz, so it should work).
