    Colors in bitmap format are saved as 24-bit RGB (three bytes), which means that in a single pixel you can store three different characters. Looking on a ASCII table you can find out which color values you should pick. Heh, it’s a pretty cool trick! Very nice!

    I’ve seen this image a while ago and I wanted to investigate this. At my blog (http://gamerwho.wordpress.com/2011/04/01/graphical-programming-ftw/) I show how you can make your own picture.

    For your interest check out 4D Barcodes. They use a similar kind of coloured dot pattern to hold upto three time the amount of data that a black and white 3D barcode uses to store data (QRCodes).

    I had similar thought of this a few years ago. Pity I didn’t document it then!
