How do I order more byte tags?

A Microsoft Surface developer unit includes two full sets of byte tags. (A full set includes one tag for each of the 256 possible byte tags.)

These tags consist of geometric arrangements of infrared reflective and absorbing areas. Each tag has a specific value, so that you can program your application to respond to a specific tag value with a specific action.

Example byte tags

To order more byte tags, visit the Microsoft Surface page on the GM Nameplate Web site.

You can also download an electronic version of the byte tags as part of the Microsoft Surface Byte Tags download.
