An Indian by the name Sainul Abideen has reportedly discovered a method
to represent data in the form of color combinations instead of the
existing binary format that uses zeroes and ones. Abideen's discovery
forms part of his postgraduate research.
Abideen calls the new technology 'rainbow format,' which uses color
patterns to hold any kind of file, whether text, MP3, or film. He says
storage density can be hugely increased by using the new technology.
instance, a conventional pen drive can hold up to 64GB of data. But by
using rainbow format, it is possible to store terabytes of data,
Abideen says. Conversely, if very little data needs to be stored,
CDs/floppy drives are not required to be used.
According to Abideen, the new technology could allow safer and
longer term data storage. It is possible the technology might even help
reduce data storage costs.
Sainul sees endless possibilities for the new technology: one being
likely use in visiting cards. In this case, small dots on the cards
would hold all personal details of visitors, which can then be read
using a 'rainbow' card reader attached to any device.
Sainul plans to set up his own company in Kerala in future, though for now he is content with pursuing his research.
