Cauzin is still around and supplies systems used at many trade shows for
encoding and reading 2d data patches on badges.

I found a Cauzin reader for my Apple II, but haven't played with it. Years
ago I wrote a couple letters to Cauzin asking about using the technology
minus the reader, but they had no interest.
