What's the point in Android barcode scanning?

What can you do with barcode scanning on Android? Does it have any practical use, or is it just a gimmick?

No, it has practical uses: look around in somme shops - many products are labelled with smartcodes. You can scan them for extra info, or (for DVDs etc) bonus material.
Also, there are clever apps to make use of the scanner - such as book or CD "library" apps that let you scan your stuff to set up a little data base; keep track of your things etc...

In other words: from a superior Alien perspective it's typically useless human stuff :p
