http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0doRQ6HZpuE Find of the day: a fully self contained bar code scanner and interpreter for $10 at Ax Man Surplus. That's right, now I can find a way to add things to my Delicious Library library the really hard way. All you have to do is take this device and connect it to a serial to USB connector and then write an interface to the software. Maybe I won't be doing that....
But here is the interesting stuff:
Bar code Scanner head and decoder. Fixed Mount. RS-232 Connection, Precision motor driving a 10-sided mirror scans 200 times per second. Built in firmware for setup and configuration. Scans all common bar code symbologies.
