Paper Memory Mash!

This is just fantasic and amazing! I think this has to be one of the most profoundly important developments in technology r&d all year (at least).

A student called Sainul Abideen in Bangalore has developed a method of ‘storing’ data using small printed shapes called ‘Rainbow Technology’. An A4 sheet of paper can apparently store a staggering 256GB of data!

In a demo at his college laboratory, this writer could see text typed on 432 pages of foolscap paper being stored in a four square inch paper. The writer was even shown a 45-second video clip of a Malayalam film stored on an ordinary paper. Sainul was guided by Prof. Hyderali, head of the MCA Department at the College in all these projects.

*picks up jaw from the floor.

Now we just need cool little scanners – like the business card ones. You’d easly get a full DVD on a business card! LOL! Oh. My. God.

    a couple of hundred quid 😉

    It may be a passing fad – like the interweb – who knows.

    but what matters is that we’ll know how to deal with this ‘new’ 3dinterweblock when it comes – maybe it already has.

    I dont think that Linden is the future for the Metaverse though. Not for a while until they fix the scalability issues.

    Coding for cash is funnnnnnnnn! 🙂

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at podcast.com for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
