Barcode + Colour + Mobile = ?

Rein, a student at the Working Tomorrow graduation program, gives us a demo of how you can create a coloured barcode and scan it with your mobile. By adding colour the information capacity of the barcode increases. This leads to many new ways of using the barcode. For instance: put a coloured barcode on a poster, scan it with your mobile and directly get the ringtone of that particular brand on your phone. Other creative suggestions? Leave a comment.

impressive, but how much data can it store per square centimeter?

why is it necessary to have more information in the barcode? An URL who be enough, isn’t it? Then all information on the Internet is available. So why bother about a high information density bar code?

Barcodes have so much potential, a handy way to load contact details for example. I wish I could create barcodes on my n95 and have it display on the screen… what a cool wallpaper that would be!

@Erwin: This way, you instantly get what you want. So, no internet connection needed, no need to open a browser, no downloading.
