Barcodes That Talk

Scan a barcode and hear a message you’ve recorded.  Right now, the start-up company Labels That Talk encodes each barcode with about 8kb or auditory information, enough for a 10-second message.

Ideas for this service include enhancing photo albums with audio messages about each image and using it on labels for medication.  What would happen if we encoded our library barcodes with recorded information?  Hmmm . . .
