About Labelz

Labelz Example

Labelz are small self-adhesive labels one can put on things that are somewhere in publicly used enviroments like hackerspaces, offices, workshops and so on. The label should make it possible to understand who owns this thing, what you are allowed to do with it, what to do if it is broken, wether you can move it someplace else, and things like that.

The labels contain QR Codes and human readable Info (Text and Icons)

Creation

They can be created at the current test-implementation using Firefox. After the creation, check that in printing page setup all the header and footers are disabled, and that the page borders are minimal. Also, select the right printer, otherwise things go to the lazzzor... The paper format should be set to 62x30mm. Usually, the settings are safed by the web browser.


The labels can be printed on 62mm endless thermo-paper on the labelprinter on the Lazzzor computer. It is a Brother QL-560.

Background

The flags should apply not only to junk in the lab, e.g. Beamer,Printers,Displays,Styrofoam Cutters,Toolboxes, Repraps, Food?, Bikes, Furniture, unfinished projects, you name it; Also a more general use context should be kept in mind.

Basically all the information should boil down to a short, coded, still human readable string<200 Letters, that is also replicated by the QR-Code There should be data fields, The Flags should be two-byte values that are at least human interpretable if possible, i.e. Public Domain="PD".

Software Architecture

Currently, the form is created using php, the stuff is transfered via Post to create.php. There, the plaintext string is created, skipping unspecified fields. The QR-Code is created by a found php script. Ouput is sloppyly aligned by css/divs.

it might be cooler to go a different workflow: html form->data->executeable->png->html->printer


executeable might benefit from:

or maybe just html form->display->html->printer

current proof of concept: Labelz test Maybe use some existing online service for generating the QR codes or implement the QR library in JavaScript so we don't need an active component on the server?

Content String schematic

You have flags, that are defined by a one letter. Then you have flag-specifiers, by two letters.

e.g. OwnershipType-Flag="O"

e.g. OwnershipType-Flag-Specifier="pd"=Public Domain

-> Opd


If there are strings included

"R"=responsible person

"8" number of characters following

"bkubicek"

-> R8bkubicek


as http:// links can be encoded in qr-codes, and are understand automatically by most qr-code decoders, one could per principle encode using a link [i know .lz does not exist]: http://labe.lz/V1aOpdUfrD010110 could be something like "Version 1a Ownership Public domain Use Freely". The linked page could then decode the qr-code string and present it nicely.
