Color-coded Barcode Labels

Microsoft barcode label

Microsoft is taking black and white barcode labels a step further — they are including color! With addition of 4-8 colors and triangles, you can store much more information. Although it can’t be used on shipping labels (need high level of accuracy for printing), Microsoft has already signed with an organization that coordinates product labeling for audiovisual works. We may be seeing them on DVDs and they may be required to see bonus material.
