Barcode Hand Scanner HC-56

A handy scanner for reading barcodes. This scanner is used during payment in convenience stores and shop checkout counters. The design reproduces the shape of the surface made by the contact of fingers and palm to the body of the device for stress-free use by anybody, regardless of grip and dominant hand. The black graphics in the shape of a ginkgo leaf makes it easier for the user to aim at the barcode by symbolizing the flow of information with the siphoning of the barcode.
