Sharp Creates First 100GB Blu-ray Disc

Thanks to nifty lasers, Sharp has created the first 100GB Blu-ray disc. The new Blu-ray format, called VR-100BR1, uses a new triple-layer standard that allows storage space of up to 128GB on single-write discs and 100GB on re-writable discs.

The new max is double the space of the current cap, 50GB, and will give you a whole lotta space for all those extra features no one ever uses (kidding!). The first 100GB discs will be available in Japan later this month for $60 (!). Enjoy your time at the top Sharp, either Sony's upcoming laser or the overall demise of physical media will topple you (not kidding!). [CNET]
