JAB Code has what it takes to be a standard: Colorful barcodes for more security

The great advantage of the colorful JAB code (JAB = Just Another Barcode) is that it can store much more data in the same area than a black and white barcode. The colorful badges can be used, for example, to secure job references, training certificates, wills or even proof of authenticity for products. The code is not subject to licensing and is open source. It can already be used today. If you want to test it, you can do it here, the reader is available under the name “JAB Code” in the AppStores.
