Max shows us how to build your own “Touch Screen Barcode Scanning System” for custom applications. Parts needed include need a CuTOUCH CT1720 or CT1721, Null-modem cable, and a Metrologic Voyager Barcode scanner w/ RS232 interface. Full instructions here. See the completed project in action after the jump.

Okay, I was thinking the other day, I need to keep track of stuff on my desk and my drawers. Since there’s a bar code on almost every commercial and household item these days, I figured why don’t I just make a touch-screen item management system so I know exactly where I put my things?
