Cute barcodes to the fore
Now there isn’t anything gadgety about this piece of news, but the very fact that it is cool allows it to be posted (we’re trying to cater to the ‘coolest’ part of this tech blog ;)). Design company D-Barcode shows the world that creativity isn’t quite dead, coming up with cute drawings to complement the boring ol’ barcode. Make no mistake about it, these barcodes actually work and are currently being used in grocery stores throughout Japan. It goes to show that the Japanese are still up there with their attention to detail even in everyday items like the humble barcode. Kawaii!
