Safer taxis with camera phones

Clearly, driving taxi is one hard job, but then, there are also taxi drivers, which make the life of their passengers pretty hard. I bet everybody can share such a story, and may be even more than one.

Anyway, Korea, always at the forefront of innovation, has come up with an idea to increase the security of passengers in the taxis.

Here, "Each taxi will have a specific bar code inside and outside of the cab that the mobile phone can recognize, and by placing the phone on the bar code, the cab information will be stored into the mobile phone so that passengers can text-message it to their friends or family." Barcodes exist in every supermarket, but to apply it to a taxi service is really an out of the box idea.
