Use your phone as a barcode scanner?

By | June 16, 2011

For most of our cataloguing of books we’ve been using barcode scanners to scan the ISBN numbers and enter them into our database. But as someone pointed out, telephones and mobile devices with cameras really already have almost the entire software/hardware inbuilt… but wouldn’t it be nice if we could just use one to scan our data and enter it into a database!

It would make books, CDs and movie collecting much easier!
