Enough of all these membership cards for the grocery store, the gym, or other retailers! Some smart dude came up with a simple, yet brilliant idea. He scanned all his memberships cards and synced them over to his iPhone.
To test it out I went to the local hardware store and asked the girl behind the counter if she could scan the barcode from my phone. The first look I got was pure amazement. To her the physical card was transformed into a picture on a shiny device. On top of that the barcode was scanned successfully. The result; a slightly confused girl and a happy me.
It obviously works fine. I’ve always wanted to try this with my airline boarding pass. Maybe I should give it a try next time I fly.
