Can you recommend a good scanner or camera for scanning UPC bar codes?

We usually recommend the CueCat because it's cheap (can be had for about $15 on eBay) and it works very well with the Pedia applications.
 
The CueCats come in two different forms: regular and modified. The regular ones send their input scrambled where as the modified ones send it to look as though you typed the bar code with the keyboard. Either version will work with the Pedia applications but if you plan to use the scanner with other applications as well then I'd recommend getting a modified one.

Take a look at this post on our forum for more information about scanners and web cams that work well with the Pedias:
