magnetic stripe reader


Recommended Posts

I took one of an older retail monitor and wired up the pins to a keyboard plug, (took a while to figure it out) but now.. works wonders, swipe and it prints in plain text what ever data is on the card :)

If you were good with electronics you could dupt the output wires to a small lcd screen. I wired it to keyboard out so im sure the same thing would work.. the whole unit is about the size of a cell phone, maybe a bit bigger so its still fairly portable.
