Not sure if it is quite what you want, but you can scan barcodes with a
smart phone. The scanner I'm using will even try to lookup the numbers
to give you more detail. (just to make sure I wasn't mistaken, I
scanned a book on the table beside me - the barcode was scanned, the
title of the book was correctly identified, and a link is provided to
where I can buy it. QR Codes work too.
You might be able to find a way to use this with your get up. If not,
MemEx sells new barcode scanners, but they are a little pricey.
