    OT: Holographic Storage

    Some might find this interesting. I had read about this technology a few years ago, but now it's reality.

    The price tag will prohibit me from being an early adopter however

    I thought technology was striving away from bulky storage devices and moving more to smaller more adaptable devices like a memory shhhhticks?

    The size is what surprised me too. The drive is big and 300GB for that size media seems low. But I would guess as the technology develops capacity will increase and size will decrease.

    I had read a few years ago about someone developing a cube shape crystal that would hold terrabytes of data.

    With blue lasers and clear plastic? Whoa!!!

    I saw the prototype last year at NAB. It's good to hear that they are soon shipping...

    Seems cool. When the price goes down in 15 years, as speculated by the article, I'll buy the device and media storage.
