Unity can access cameras, so I'll say, yes you can make one.

You could probably use a RenderTexture's color buffer if I understand it correctly. It is a UnityPro only feature and there is no way around that.

I would be astonished/amazed if there was a tutorial that showed you how to scan barcodes in Unity. There are many hits on Google when I searched for software to read barcodes. Nothing looked a simple drop in solution for Unity, though.

I don't know whether unity3d has an interface for integrating bar code scanner, I hope I can directly scan bar code from unity3d through some codes.
