Before Amazon’s announcement (which, because of the timing on March 31, led some people to think erroneously that it was an April Fools Joke), I had been working on an open-source barcode scanner.
I was inspired by github user danslimmon’s oscar project.
Rather than be content with an SMS shopping list, I thought I could map the scan results to an online vendor’s API, to enable scan-to-shop, a.k.a., lazy man’s shopping.
