   That is just exactly what I was talking about all the time. And it has
   been realized many many times over. Think OCR.

However, this is NOT what I was originally asking about.  I want a barcode
reader that operates at a moderately constant distance (modulo the thickness
of a book or so) and moderately constant orientation.  I want a hands-free
scanner that I can put one book after another under (aligned agains a
straight edge) and have it read the bar codes while I do nothing but move
the "products" themselves.  Think of something like a grocery-store scanner,
but slower...
