Soon you could be able to store more mp3s and podcasts in your pocket than you’ll ever have time to listen to. Fujifilm is working on a terabyte (1000 gigabyte) holographic memory, which it expects to launch in 2009. The terabyte holo-memory drive would be no bigger than a sugar cube and could access data much faster than existing memory technologies.

Holographic memory devices store binary bits of data by generating a 3D pattern of light interference inside a crystal or photopolymer, using lasers. Multiple bits can be written and read simultaneously, making the technique potentially very speedy.

Fujifilm has already developed a holographic memory disc capable of holding 300 gigabytes of data. Other companies currently working on holographic memory include IBM, Bell Labs and InPhase.

  1. Initially yes, as in every new technology that emerges; but hopefully when it's mass produced for all, prices should hopefully be 'normal'.
    I'm looking at THAT time! =)


  2. I used this site to get information for that i had in my class. This is an excellent site for this information šŸ™‚
