Fresh Code / Bar Code

Fresh Code
Fresh Code

No matter how clear the expiry date had shown, people might still forgot to check it and bought the expired product. The “Fresh Code” is a new-type of bar code, it worked like ordinary bar codes, but the color of the code will become lighter and lighter, when the product expired, the code become completely disappear so it can’t be scaned - which means the product can’t be bought anymore. This design not only set the last ditch for the consumer, it also prevent the store from accidently sold the expired products, the staff of the store can also check the condition of the products by checking the code is still existing or not.
