CrossID does almost the same job as RFID
systems, yet offers potentially a lot more.

All known solutions for tagging and identification suffer from one or more of the following technological drawbacks:
CrossID addresses and solves all of the above inferiorities. CrossID tags contain only a combination of printable materials without any designed electronic parts, chips or any other electric circuitry. CrossID takes advantage of printing technology that brings a higher degree of solvability, structure, dimensions, and survivability ‘through thick and thin’ — under extreme physical conditions.
CrossID is an identification technology. While similar to RFID codes, it offers potentially a lot more.
The CrossID patent is a chip-less liquid RFID made of a collection of chemical pigments that are mixed in a certain way. This mixture enables the tag to be associated with target in visible or invisible modes. Under proper physical conditions CrossID will start to function as a unique binary ID. This unique ID contains printable ink only, without the need for electronic parts, chips or any other electric circuits on it. CrossID as it results from those mixtures of pigments, can actually represent an endless diversity of unique printable IDs. Both a different behavior and a different structure of those stain pigments create a unique ID.
Monitored binary indications received by versatile output signals, are captured by remote sensors, creating a spatial picture of a specific ID source. Those sensors are built to avoid collisions between multiple targets located in defined areas.
So much attention has been devoted to digital documents that now hard copies are the "weak links” in the security chain. New technologies have always been of interest to mankind, for the potential of both increasing the quality of service and of improving the efficiency of operations. The fast pace of technological development and breakthroughs makes foresight difficult, but the technology revolution seems globally significant and quite likely. The revolution of information availability and utilization will continue to profoundly affect the world in all dimensions. Smart materials, agile manufacturing, and nanotechnology will change the way we produce devices while expanding their capabilities, if barriers to their development are resolved in time.
CrossID addresses the ability to provide printable (liquid) automatic identification technology similar in application to Bar Code technology, but using radio frequency and resonances signals instead of optical signals. First there was a revolution in computers, and then there was a revolution in networking. The next revolution will be in communication materials. The CrossID goal is to become the most common printable ID (Remote Readable ID) method worldwide that can be placed on money bills, papers, folios, wrappers and other objects. It will provide invisible and inexpensive tags (less then 0.1 cent) in any quantity, immune to radiation and high temperatures, and be part of ordinary products manufactured in the same way as is barcode. CrossID can be read from the distance without the conventional visibility or line of sight limitations.
