3D Barcode


Have any of you noticed that 3D Barcode on the right side of my blog (i am showing a bigge picture on top)??? well, if you have an N95 or N80, use the application called Barcode (located in the Office Folder by deafult in N95) and start Scanning my 3D Barcode and it will direct your N95 or N80 for that matter, to this blog. That is right, the barcode is actually a link to my blog!!!

Now, you may ask how did I made that??? well, just got0 Nokia Mobile Codes (click here) and start creating your own Mobile 3D barcodes... cool!!!

This is not a 3d barcode. 3d is 3-dimensional. The image above only has two dimensions, X and Y. For an example of a 3d barcode, see here: _http://www.newscientist.com/data/images/archive/2510/25105901.jpg

It is a 2D barcode! Other morons like you started calling this barcode 3D...

This is a Data Matrix code. Data is encoded in height and width, hence 2D. Lots of marketing people like to call it 3D. Just hype. Real 3D codes are those you can feel with your fingers. Like bumps or raised lines. Best Buy advertises with QR codes that look like this but are still 2D.

I deal with barcodes every day. That isn't a 3D barcode, it is 2D. Technically, there are NO 3D barcode specifications. The difference between linear and 2D is that linear barcodes have data encoded along only one axis (like the UPC codes on packages) while 2D barcodes use two axes to encode data. It has NOTHING to do with the physical measurements of the symbol.
At times you will hear about 3D barcodes, but these are really 2D barcodes etched or otherwise physically engraved on something.

That's a 2D barcode. Looks like Semacode.

wow... relax your sphincter guys... english is a fluid language and lots of words we use aren't THAT freakin' specific... if I use the term KLEENEX to refer to any rectangular tissue in a box I KNOW that I'm generalizing.

lol so being a checkout person at the grocery store makes you a bar code expert?

I think that's called a 2D barcode. I don't think any official definition for 3D barcodes exist yet. I don't think the need for them has arisen yet

2D barcodes are things like Semacode and QR Code, and there are a few others.
