Japanese supermarket scanner that doesn’t need bar codes!

A Japanese supermarket is currently using a new Toshiba scanner that recognises objects based on their colours and shape, so products no longer need barcodes; with all the AR applications for smartphones, developments like the Google goggles and so on, it was just a matter of time for someone to be able to develop this amazing scanner.

Let’s hope Australian supermarkets get them soon enough.
