PaperDisk is a powerful new technology
allowing you to store and communicate digital information on paper.
PaperDisk prints special patterns that can carry any type of computer
file: text, spreadsheets, graphics, database entries, audio, video,
etc. You then retrieve the files using an ordinary scanner or digital
camera. PaperDisk has encoded in a single printed pattern 1 megabyte compressed (originally 4MB of text) within an 8.5 by 11 inch space .
PaperDisk, from inception, was designed expressly to connect the world
of print to any type of digital resource, including the web.
PaperDisk has also been implemented on camera phones such as the Nokia
6680, 3650, and 7650, together with APIs for encoding on a desktop and
decoding on the client phone. PaperDisk can be used on camera phones
without add-on lenses.
