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!

Ever wonder the meaning behind the barcodes and how they all have the same 666 in them? 6 on each end and one in middle… Soon all things will be marked, even us but we will not have a barcode stamped on us but a chip implanted underneath our skin on our right hand or forehead as written in the Bible. Scared? Think am bullshitting you? Even if your a non-believer, why use the number 666 on every fucken item being sold? Ever wonder? I already know, will you know BEFORE it’s too late for you?

keep making all the barcodes becuase when i see the plan ones they make me fall asleep no matter where i am even in the middle of the mall i fall asleep and the security guards have to drag me of but i weigh like 194kgs so it takes all of them plus a few of their customer to help move me and when i wake up like two hours later i fing myself out side the mall in the gutter of the parking lot holding up 100s of cars in a traffic jam and a huge doctors bill because i broke the arms of the people who tried to carry me out of the store and i end up losing alot of money and time and feeling guilty all because of the barcode that is plain and boring
