Our goal is to create an efficient, inexpensive, and portable 1-D barcode scanner that utilizes an iPod Touch and an off-the-shelf barcode engine. Current barcode scanners are inefficient or too expensive for Marshalltown Company’s needs. Our focus will be to create a user-friendly device that integrates into the company’s current inventory system.
