A bar code is an optoelectronical scripture consisting of different widths, parallel lines and spaces. In this case the word "code" is not an encryption but an image data into binary symbols. With bar code scanners or cameras the data of bar code can be read and processed by machine.

There are two different types of bar codes. The better-known type with numbers or letters is probably the one-dimensional bar code. This one is primarily used on packaging and products.

Due to their structure two-dimensional bar codes can store much more information, such as product names and descriptions, links to websites, contact information etc. Recently they are used for marketing purposes. By scanning the code you will get hidden information.
