How Holographic Storage Works (Spoiler: It's a 3D CD)

GE just announced that they're fitting 500GB of data on discs the size of DVDs through "holographic storage" technologies. It's OK to be a bit lost. This clip explains the idea in more tactile terms. » 4/28/09 4:40pm 4/28/09 4:40pm

GE Makes Holographic Storage Breakthrough For Cheap(er) 500GB Discs

Sheinhardt Wigs GE engineers have announced a breakthrough in the formerly retardedly-expensive field of holographic storage: by making the holograms smaller, they can squeeze 500GB on standard-sized optical discs. » 4/27/09 10:39am 4/27/09 10:39am

Holographic Drives on the Way This Year?

We've been hearing rumblings of holographic drives and media for years, but now they're actually on the way, ready to be shipped this year. We saw some of these holographic storage prototypes at CES, where 515GB of data can be shoehorned onto a square inch of disk space. » 3/28/06 9:39am 3/28/06 9:39am
