Price Check on the Bridge: Barcode Scanners Hidden in the new Star Trek

Posted November 12, 2009

Barcode scanners from BarcodesInc feature prominently in the USS Enterprise bridge in the latest Star Trek movie

If you pick up a copy of Star Trek on DVD next Tuesday be sure to hit pause a few times during scenes set in the bridge. Chances are, you will see one of 8 barcode scanners purchased by Paramount Pictures from BarcodesInc in the background.

If you don’t have the DVD, you can also find the scanners in many of the trailers and tv spots . The official Star Trek website contains a nice panorama of the Enterprise bridge where you can see all of the barcode scanners.

Here’s what you’re looking for:
