Most regular readers of this blog will be familiar with my interest in the use of 2D barcodes as a means of providing a link from a physical object or location to an online resource using an ordinary camera phone.
I’ve just found an open-source Google Code project called ZXing, which is an open-source project to build a cross-platform barcode reader library. If it succeeds in its aims, it looks like it could become one of the best, most flexible readers available, and because it’s open source, it should be possible to incorporate it into related educational projects such as integration with augmented reality learning resources.
ZXing’s successful implementation to power the Facebook QR Codes application demonstrates its early potential.
This is one project I’ll be following closely!
