Google celebrates today the Bar code with a Barcode doodle instead of the Google logo on their homepage. 57 years ago the patent for the omni-present barcode got issued to inventors Joseph Woodland and Bernard Silver in the United States.

You can read all about the Barcode or Bar Code on Wikipedia. Recently we reported about the MIT Bokode technology which is aimed at replacing Barcodes - it will not be an easy task.
Coincidently this year's Nobel Prize for Physics went to Willard S. Boyle and George E. Smith, who invented the first successful imaging technology using a digital sensor - a CCD (Charge-Coupled Device), which is needed for computers to read barcodes.
