[Akimbomidget] had a great idea for using webcams to
copyprotection serial code for software. [Klaatu]
pointed out the
propensity to put all serial numbers in 6pt font.
My idea is to use a webcam or QR reader to grab the
QR code off of medicine bottles (or any other products
limited display space) in order to then display the dosage
instructions or any other relevant information in LARGE
the screen. My pet peeve is important instructions
printed in gray
on gray raised plastic in the aforementioned 6pt font.

||Would be useful for dosage instructions that
wouldn't fit, even in 6-point. I've seen some that
took two pages in 12-point.
||Would also be useful if the medication
instructions changed when you were halfway
finished with the bottle.
||You go also select to have the instructions displayed in the
language of your choice.
