Barcodes: Not Just for Shopping Anymore

Are you all seeing these barcode things all over the place, or is it just me?
The first one I noticed was a couple months ago at the Ground Zero Memorial in NYC.
Now I'm seeing them everywhere.
Apparently, you use an app on your smartphone (I have ScanLife) and this barcode takes you to some related webpage.

My raisins barcode above leads to a Sun-Maid-sponsored page for Kung Fu Panda 2.
Hey, I never said the technology was always worth your time.

  1. You should get your own barcode and wear it around and have it link to your blog:-)

  2. That is an ingenius idea, Larissa! I'm gonna look into that.
