so i finally snuck in a successful suggestion to barcode our inventory in the lab. the boss has given it the ok. i’m so exited, but also worried because if i don’t pick a system that will really be convenient for everyone, it might not get used. i figure we’ll barcode at least the chemicals and supplies.

<p>i keep eyeing the $1500 distance scanners with IR beam capabilities, but i think that might be a bit excessive.  but think of all the fun!  we could put the lauryl sulfate on the top shelf, step down (if you&#8217;re my height), shoot the barcodes of the bottle and the shelf it&#8217;s on, and then IR the information back to a computer.  it would be great.  <strong>sigh</strong></p>

<p>so anyone with any barcoding fantasies they would like me to try and bring to life, please share.</p>
