imageA couple of months ago I wrote about how using the iPhone as a barcode scanner could be a huge opportunity. After all, mobile devices in Asia have been doing this for years, why not have the iPhone do the same? If you read my post yesterday, this feature could affect the feasibility of applications like Delicious Library for the iPhone.

Well, there is now an application available to capture data points through the iPhone’s built-in camera. It’s called iMatrix. If you have jailbroken your phone and have been updating through installer.app, you may have already had a chance to try this application out.

According to the application website: “Application can: open web link via Safari, add contact in your Address Book, add event to Calendar, add new note to Notes, and initiate new e-mail or phone call. “

What applications can you see this being used for?
