Introducing Haiku Friday: Barcode-themed Haiku Poetry


We’re excited to debut our newest and geekiest creation yet: the Haikode!  These barcode-themed poems follow the traditional structure of Haikus with a barcode twist. For those that don’t know, Haikus are short poems containing three lines in which the first line contains five syllables, the second line contains seven syllables and the third line contains five syllables. Anyone can create these fun poems in no time! In experimenting with these funny little poems, we became inspired to combine our love for barcodes with our new-found compulsion for creating Haikus. Here are some Haikodes that resulted:

Long live the barcode!

      hi,so far, for each animation i’ve tried on anrdoid, the final result doesn’t work as expected .for example, if i wish to make a button move from one point to another , after it moved to the second point, it isn’t clickable there, but only on the first position .is it possible now to overcome such a trivial thing without extra code ? if so, will it work for every animation and even while the animation is playing?
