Barcode Scanning Your Life with Webcam

In response to our piece on retro CueCat library scanning, a blogger on GeekswithBlogs wrote about another site/service for barcoding your stuff. Barcopedia allows you to use a webcam to “scan” barcodes. And they’re building a user-created database of everything, from books and CDs to the contents of your kitchen and bathroom medicine cabinet. As the blogger says, if they make this thing extensible, open the API, there’s all sorts of cool places this sort of tech could go.
