What About An iOS/Android HP-41 Barcode Reader App?
Message #1 Posted by Jake Schwartz on 10 July 2013, 10:39 a.m.


There are a bunch of really good iPhone and Android HP41 emulators out there, as we know. I was wondering last night whether anyone gave any thought to a new smartphone app (or perhaps an adjunct to an existing emulator app) which would allow the phone camera to read HP41 printed barcode and automatically import it into one of the HP41 emulators. Since there already are several barcode-reading apps out there for various other barcode types, it seemed that HP41 barcode might be possible - certainly it would require multiple "passes" to read long programs with many multiple program lines. This would "close the loop" with apps which print barcode from program code.
