    Hi,

    I am new to electronics, but I was wondering:

    1. What is the cheapest, small barcode scanner available?
    2. How easy is it to make a barcode scanner?
    3. Has anybody had any experience with working with barcode scanners?

    Many thanks,

    Nick.

    Radioshack gave them away a few years ago, think it was called cat
    "something", anyway it was used mostly as spyware when you loaded its
    software but im sure you can find one cheap at a garage sale " less then a
    buck"

    It was the CueCat.

    I've never heard of it being used for anything other than their nefarious
    plot, though.

    It was capable of reading barcodes though, so I suppose with a custom
    driver...
     
  4. Both B.G. Micro and Allelectronics.com have these listed.
