Store 450GB of Data on an A4 sheet Paper

by Shivaranjan on November 26, 2006


An Indian engineering student has developed a data storage technology called “Rainbow Technology”. The best feature of this technology is the data is stored in ordinary paper using geometric shapes instead of digital format. :D Using this technique around 450GB (a modern Blu-ray disc can hold max of 50GB) of data can be stored on a single A4 sheet paper. To retrieve your data is all you need is a scanner and some specialized software which can analyze and decode your data. A paper with fully loaded data will actually look like a random modern art painting. :)

My View:
We actually need this kind of innovation at this point of time when we are in need of large data storage media.
Things I would like to know more about this technology?

  1. The data transfer rates.
  2. The reliability of data on the paper or plastic paper against day to day use.
