True value labels:
Interesting idea for camera cell phones as bar code readers. "A label similar to the nutritional facts one on food items in the super market was proposed. It should list all raw material, labor, pollutants, air, miles of transport, ... that went into that product. I think it would be shocking for people to find out how many miles are driven for just a simple strawberry yogurt. ..
There is a service where you can send your smart phone camera picture of a barcode and it sends you back the product number. We don't need the label on the product, with these technologies we can bring the information into the hands of the interested consumer? " 11:21:03 PM
