5D ‘Superman memory’ crystal could lead to unlimited lifetime data storage
 
360 TB stored on a 5D quartz glass disk...Wow! :)
 
I've read that it relies on lasers pulsing one quadrillion times per second though a modulator that splits each pulse into 256 beams to generate a holographic image on self-assembled nanostructures within a disk of fused-quartz glass.

I wonder how they'll fit that into my laptop. :grin:

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

Some of the stuff they are coming up with is crazy. I was watching an episode of The Universe last night, probably from a year or two ago, and they showed a computer that in many ways is similar to ENIAC. Takes up a whole room, can only do simple tasks, but operates on quantum physics level.

Well, of course that'd be how it's done.....

Good to 1000 degrees C  :confused:

 

Someone will try to pick up this glass then drop it (because it's so hot) and break it.  :rolling:

Downside, it isn't thermally stable at 21 degrees C :)

A Cubic Butt Load.... :grin:

 

Okay, that's redundant because a Butt Load is a volume but it's funnier that way... ;)
