[I]"Optware Holographic Versatile Card (30 GB HVC)
Optware, a developer of holographic data storage systems, plans to release it’s
Holographic 30GB Card at the end of 2006
A fake-device picture here shows the nice credit-card sized 30GB media as well. They say they can make it even smaller down to a memory card size.
While the hardware for reading/writing will be around EUR 7500 at release and the reading device alone be at EUR 1500, the media are said to be around 100 Yen ( 0,75 EUR, 1 USD).
Of course if some Sony’s or Microsofts would design their XBOX-4 or Playstation 4 hardware to use such a media for games, I am sure the price would rock down to a home user’s purchasing spot of around 200-800 EUR within a few months."[/I]
What do you think about it?
Could it become a status symbol?
Or maybe it will be a great flop due to the best storage capacity of USB pens?
