256 gigs on a piece of paper

Very cool. If it's real.

Indian student stores 256GB of data on A4 paper
[MarketClusters - 27 Nov 2006]

Indian technology student Sainul Abideen claims to have developed new technology that can store up to 256GB of information on an A4 sheet of paper using "rainbow technology" that encodes the data into dense coloured shapes printed on the paper. The encoded information is printed onto the paper at a density of 2.7GB per square inch. A custom scanner is used to read and decode the data into its original digital format. Abideen says the technology has a vast number of applications, with scanners embedded in mobile phones allowing mobile access to the cheap and prevalent paper storage medium.
