Conference Proceeding

Date of Original Version



Universal Product Codes (UPC) barcodes are quintessential for food packaging and are legislatively mandated to soon appear on drugs and pharmaceuticals. Data acquired from barcode readers is the greatest necessary source of information utilized to conduct our commercial and societal affairs. The barcode's "data-in-data-out" paradigm will now evolve into a transinformative mechanism by utilization of recently developed thermographic printing ink. As designed, one transinformative barcode is capable of transforming the message of all other UPC codes.
