Something new, the MovieBarCode

Barcodes are used since I was crawling across the floor in a diaper. Now some anonymous artist invented something new: The MovieBarcode. It’s an image where frames from a movie are taken and compressed to a single image. It’s awesome. You can recognize the scenes of the movies in it just based on the colors spectrums shown. Granted, these barcodes are NOT barcodes in the strictest sense, but you’ll get the idea when you see the gallery. Bloggers like Mr. Reid and DarrenBareFoot found a way to reverse engineer the proces to create their own MovieBarCodes.

See if you can guess them all in the database can be found here.

    Thanks for linking to my piece about movie barcodes.

    For the record, the last name is "Barefoot", though "Barefood" is also fun.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I changed it.
