Microsoft Tag is a color bar code. is a new type of barcode, have 3 dimension. it looks going popular on mobile phone.
High Capacity Color Barcode (HCCB) is the name coined by Microsoft for its technology of encoding data in a 2D “barcode” using clusters of colored triangles instead of the square pixels traditionally associated with 2D barcodes.Data density is increased by using a palette of 4 or 8 colors for the triangles, although HCCB also permits the use of black and white when necessary. It has been licensed by the ISAN International Agency for use in its International Standard Audiovisual Number standard, and serves as the basis for the Microsoft Tag mobile tagging application .

The technology was created by Gavin Jancke, an engineering director at Microsoft Research. Quoted by BBC News in 2007, he said that HCCB was not intended to replace traditional barcodes. “It’s more of a ‘partner’ barcode …. The UPC barcodes will always be there. Ours is more of a niche barcode where you want to put a lot of information in a small space.”
