Also, the Samsung Galaxy S IV offer Mobeam to beam barcodes
As with most of the utilitarian features that the Samsung Galaxy S IV offers is Mobeam. This feature uses light-based communication technology to fool scanners into believing the light is actually a barcode. The Galaxy S IV uses pulses of infrared light to project the light. The ultimate aim of the company that implements the technology (who go by the same name) is to facilitate several point-of-sale outlets with the ability to make barcode scanning simple and decentralized. Soon, the Galaxy S IV will be one of the favorites when it comes to beaming coupons, tickets, vouchers with a barcode to any standard barcode scanner. Mobeam has partnered with Proctor and Gamble to develop a mobile coupon system. The API of the application will be available to developers after the launch.
This is yet another innovative feather added to the decorate hat that the Samsung Galaxy S IV dons so proudly. Soon, we could expect Mobean-enabled applications that we hope, will make technology at cash counters more prominent than NFC has managed thus far.
