The real genius of this is that paper support, in many ways, is still superior to e-support. It has a proven track record of durability. CDs have been known, in humid tropical countries, to deteriorate in less than 5 years. Magnetic support? We all know what happens to that. SDs, unless locked, could last but nothing has been released about durability. Maybe ROM support media on chips?

Imagine that, your whole e-library on a single piece of paper!!!

The Achille's heel I see to this concept is still the reliance on computers and scanners.
The companies that design and build those will never settle back on design. As long as a company has to follow economy and market, it will be required to grow, and these necessities will dictate obsolescence of hardware.

But there are ways around this, "IF" this invention is nurtured by responsible entities.

Cheers to Mr. Sainul !!!
