UPC codes

2002-07-31 17:23:22+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

The other thing I'm having to do is get some information from this device we're working on back into the computer, and since we're taking pictures with cameras anyway, putting bar codes on the moving parts seems like the best way to do that. George J. Laurer was apparently the inventor of the UPC back in 1973, and has answers to questions about the UPC and some thoughts on patents. BarCode 1 has lots of barcode links, and Dan Bornstein's barcode server generates barcodes on-line.

I know a guy locally, that is the all-time uber-geek expert on the strange and wonderful world of BarCodes and those weird things that UPS and Fed-X use.... You can encode LOTS of data on them. he even wrote linux code that makes them.
