3D printing with air pockets for physical tagging: Aircode

Researchers from Columbia University in New York have developed an innovative method of embedding physical tags into 3D printed objects. Coined ‘AirCode’, the method uses air pockets to contain information in a 3D printed part. Figure 1 from the paper shows the AirCode technology. Physical tags The research paper refers to the presence of digital tags such as barcodes and QR codes and explains how there is an opportunity to incorporate these into objects using 3D printing. The AirCode technique is imperceptible to the human eye and requires a computer imaging method to retrieve the data. This approach, the […]
