A few days ago I wrote an article suggesting we need more variety
in the bar code industry. And, that maybe it was time for bar code readers in a color besides putty, gray or black. The article was called Fifty Shades of Gray in the Bar Code Industry
, and it bitched about the boring bar code readers that we have. Well, apparently I'm not the only who feels that way.
Last night, someone I met at RFID Live told me that a company HAS developed a hot pink bar code reader
very recently. (Possibly for use in a Komen-type campaign). However, it is not going to be produced. The pink bar code reader was nixed by the Board of Directors of the company that developed it. I'm hoping to get more info and maybe a picture today.
