Alternative Way to Store Information -- Quipu

Chinese, Japanese or Korean "writings" are exotic but all of them are still writings as we know it.
How about this:

Quipu is entirely different. What makes me really amazed is that it proved that you don't need the "writing system as we know it" to store information. Thus, to build complex stuffs or develop complex system. Well, Quipu is a "sort of" writing but it's far more different than what other cultures have developed over the last several millenia. It's an original idea, an out-of-the box solution to store and presumably transmit information.
