How could I create a PaperDisk?

Just found the website of PaperDisk, but no software for creation and reading of those.

But why would you want to do that? – Ansis Malins Jul 26 '12 at 13:12
because storing data is much more reliable than a cd or else. Ink lasts for a very long time – Daniel Ruf Jul 26 '12 at 14:05
Are you building a data vault in case the technological civilization collapses? – Ansis Malins Jul 31 '12 at 22:42
No not really. But who knows. ;-) – Daniel Ruf Aug 2 '12 at 10:15

Found a working alternative: PaperBa(c)k

PaperBack is a free application that allows you to back up your precious files on the ordinary paper in the form of the oversized bitmaps. If you have a good laser printer with the 600 dpi resolution, you can save up to 500,000 bytes of uncompressed data on the single A4/Letter sheet. Integrated packer allows for much better data density - up to 3,000,000+ (three megabytes) of C code per page.
