There is a
new prototype version of the tanglescanner available. It can be operated autonomously – no heavy laptop or 110V/220V power line necessary.
It can be powered by a powerbank and connect via wifi to a mobile phone hotspot.
Scanned barcodes will be visible on the tangle (IOTA blockchain) within seconds.
We put a
LCD display on top of it so the scanned barcodes will be shown on it.
Here you can see some first impressions:
The handheld classic barcode scanner (could be a cash-register one etc.) is connected via USB to the tanglescanner.

I have been invited to give a presentation of the tanglescanner at the codecamp blockchain developers trend in 2018 event in Bangkok. Thank you Desmond and Pong for inviting me as a speaker.
It has been an interesting audience of around 100 blockchain developers.
After the presentation I did some live demos of scanning barcodes directly into the blockchain / tangle.
There has been a solid interest in the tanglescanner and we discussed about use cases like scanning goods during an ordering process or adding data to the blockchain using IoT devices.
IOTA is a very good solution for nano and micro transactions – no transaction fees and no need to transport a value during the transaction.
Due to the architecture of IOTA there are no scaling problems – the more transactions are processed – the faster they will be confirmed.

Barcode to blockchain / tangle.
I created a mini version of the demo video as gif. The video can be watched
here in full length.
The tanglescanner is doing exactly this: “Every time a product changes hands, the transaction could be documented, creating a permanent history of a product, from manufacture to sale.”
How Will Blockchain Technology Affect the Supply Chain?
If blockchain technology allows us to more securely and transparently track all types of transactions, imagine the possibilities it presents across the supply chain.
Every time a product changes hands, the transaction could be documented, creating a permanent history of a product, from manufacture to sale. This could dramatically reduce time delays, added costs, and human error that plague transactions today.

Nice talking to
@xiongzm from Jimmy Xiong iotachina.com during the Satoshi Square meetup in Bangkok yesterday. Thank you for taking the photo btw 🙂
There have been some very good discussions with other attendees as well!
Today I gave a the first public demonstration of the #tanglescanner.
It was during a small IOTA meetup in Bangkok in the Black Swan.
We had not enough light so the video is a bit dark sometimes – sorry for that.
