ah now we’re getting somewhere with some [I]real[/I] storage, not the silly discs we’re playing around with now as said in the article, holographic storage has been a mindbaby for over a decade and I can’t wait to see some real results :slight_smile: and after holographic storage, organic computing! there can still be Star Trek in my lifetime :smiley:


where’s the holographic hard drives damnit?!

I’d like 2 c how Verbatim reacts to this!! :d


A nice Black Box.


Bit big mind you :stuck_out_tongue: It reminds me of the huge HP DAT external tape drive compared to the size of the answering machine sized tape. :stuck_out_tongue: I’d love to see the final internal version (if they do make one) as it will be really squeezing the size limits as the halographic disc size is 10mm wider than CDs. :wink:


can i just have an affordable DVD+R DL disc please?! :g
