Prince of Packaging HP Inc snaps up zero-plastic bottle maker

No plastics from HP anymore, good.

But the number of paper bottles required for one program may be quite a challenge. Good they only send a 256 bit digital key. The key comes in stacks and trays with bottles on a pallet. Some bottles with a liquid (representing a "one") and many empty bottles (representing a "zero"). This makes the order of unpacking a bit [of a] hazard. Luckily, HP mentioned the extensive use of RS codes to do erratic unpacking correction. Unfortunately, that means that the 256 bit key is packed in a 512 bit packed stream. Oh well, lets hope it still works.
