Really?? Barcodes for URLs?? Never heard of that before! My colleague told me today that there are websites that generate barcodes for URLs, and she got my attention.....bar codes for URLs? I rephrased what she told me just to make sure I heard it right. Yes, there are websites that generate barcodes for URLs. These generated barcodes can be scanned by mobile devices (that have a barcode scanner app, or built in scanners) to directly open the website instead of typing in the URL!! How cool is that!!!
So...I tried it out! I generated a barcode for my blog using the website: Bar code generator
You can use your mobile device to scan this image and can get to my blog. I use an iPhone, so I downloaded the "i-nigma bar code reader" app.
I noticed that catalogs that come in the mail also have barcodes, found one on the Express catalog today. See...I got a chance to learn something new today! :)
