Logo Code: a Common Language Based on 2D Barcodes

Christian Hof, van 't
Rathenau Institute, The Netherlands


Abstract
Logo Code is a logographic writing system based on 2D bar-coding. Its signs represent two meanings: a logo to be read by people and a numeral code for the computer. Some existing pictograms and ideograms can be used, while many new ones can be created. Digital readers, such as the camera on the mobile phone, can be used to read, translate and learn unfamiliar logos. Examples of usage are: direction signs, product information, art and games. But above all, it's a linguistic thought experiment.
