Malevolent

New Storage Technology

Recommended Posts

 Malevolent    2,904

The successor to the flash drives we use could be this quartz minidisk in the picture above. But it’s not just the shape that makes this little thing special, it’s its amazing ability of storing up to360TB (terabytes) of memory!

Just to put things into perspective, usually we’d be happy with 2TB of memory, but even that’s a lot to ask for these days. With this disk, you could store up to 130 times more photos, documents, videos, software and anything else you can think of.

This invention, which for the time being is just an experiment, was created by research scientists at the University of Southampton (UK). Besides having an almost unlimited capacity,due to the material composition of quartz, it can also last up to 14,000 years. This will be something that will outlive us all!

Below you can see a video (although it’s not the fastest video) that explains the manufacturing process of the disk. Enjoy!
