i couldnt resist it, lol so i started digging. if you dont know it, the new image for google search is a barcode to signify some new release of some new something or whatever, that part is benign. however, we doubters have a distaste for the barcode and what it could signify. so i have done some digging.

here is the pic:

starting with the idea that google always has google in thier fancy images, i decided to find it in this one.

i started with assigning each space and line a number value, it appears to me there are 4 distinct sizes for each on and off, so the number 1 is the smallest white or open, the number 2 is the smallest black or closed, so all odd are open and all even are closed, 1-8.

i get this:


and... thats all i got, lol i will post more findings as they come!

feel free to step in

google seems to be feeding people curiosity nowadays

It's really simple if you ask yourself what the google images usually mean. They are usually of a commemorative nature.

On 20 October 1949 they filed a patent application for "Classifying Apparatus and Method", in which they described both the linear and bullseye printing patterns, as well as the mechanical and electronic systems needed to read the code. The patent was issued on 7 October 1952 as US Patent 2,612,994.

But as far as what the actual barcode used would read if scanned, I haven't a clue.

Yeah, i know that this is not some world ending code or anything, just wanted to break it down for laughs so to speak


number of spaces by value (the value is what i have given them as i said above)

4's-8(it begins and ends with a4, could be a start stop?)
6's-1 (no 666 here lol)

adds to 55 total values...

plucky is scared! When I saw the bar code I thought bombs were minutes away from dropping!

What does it scan out to be?

I'm going to laugh if it turns out to be a barcode for frozen peas or something of the like

Actually in theother thread. It's a new product. A barcode reader posted by Google.

Evasius is on the ball!!!!

He pointed out that it was on this very day. October 7th the barcode was patented and later used by the third reich to track people using timeclocks.

I have been watching since the original thread was posted,.

At that time there were barcodes in the eastern hemisphere.

Wouldn't you know, the clock struck midnight and they are here in the western hemisphere also.


I seriously doubt it.

LOL true,

i was seriously just doing this in jest,

numbers are funny in that you can take most any number and make it value of letters and come back to almost any number.

i am just having some fun and though others may enjoy

actually the barcode just spells "Google" in code 128 symbology language. to test it out try this site:
Barcode inc.

Barcode data = Google
pick symbology = code 128
hit generate barcode and compare to .gif image in OP's link.

CODE 128

Code 128 is a variable length, high density, alphanumeric symbology. Code 128 has 106 different bar and space patterns and each pattern can have one of three different meanings, depending on which of three different character sets is employed. Special start characters tell the reader which of the character sets is initially being used and three special shift codes permit changing character sets inside a symbol. One character sets encodes all upper case and ASCII control characters, another encodes all upper and lower case characters and the third set encodes numeric digit pairs 00 through 99

This link tells more about it.

I can't read bar code, but I suspect it spells out "Google". There are two very similar bar patterns together, which would likely be the two o's.

AFAIK, bar code not only includes the information, but also some sort of "check digit" to ensure that the code was read properly, and something to indicate the beginning and end of the code.

1 plus 2 plus 8 is eleven. This October 11th, cataclysm. It makes sense now. plucky is extra-super scared now!

ok some more interesting vantages.

the sequence of all closed or black spaces is:


and open is:


for the closed, considering every value divisible by 4 to be a new cegment you get:

422 4222 822 822 42 4222 422 42 4624

notice the repeats?

and for open, i found that in packets of 3 you get a pattern:

137 155 511 511 317 317 135 317 511

notice that some segments are repeating

stilll playing

Um, well, not looking for hidden meaning in everything would defeat the purpose of living, or at least defeat the purpose of coming to ATS completed freaked out over things like this. Let us play and perseverate, otherwise you wet blanky.
