hello there. i am a statistician and a senior c# programmer, but i always interested in electronics. so, hearing about arduino and learning this things capabilities, it took me away with ideas.
i want to make my own barcode reader, with some barcode scanning attachments to arduino, and connect it with smartphone, via cable or wireless. i have read lots of topics/comments which includes 'barcode' in this forum before i post this. first of all, as a person out of this electronic world, how can i decide to a arduino type and barcode scanner module ? i have surfing on the net and find marson from taiwan, i think this can be the barcode scanner module ;
am i right? is this a device that i can connect to arduino to scan barcodes ?
and second thing, can i send scanned barcode data, or any other data to a smartphone, wired or wireless ?
thank for your support from now..
