Nano Clusters - The NextGen Data Storage

nanochip

Toshiba and Samsung began producing 4GB 0.85-inch hard drives earlier this year, but that’s nothing compared with what researchers at Glasgow University are working on.
The team is developing nano-clusters — clusters of molecules 10,000 times thinner than a human hair — that they say could be used to create next-gen data-storage that could cram “10,000 more ‘storage units’ into a given area than is currently possible.”
That would pump that 0.85-inch drive up to 40TB. Deets are sketchy, so we’re taking a wait-and-see on this, but that won’t stop us from thinking about how we could fill all that space. Let’s see, that’s 10 million songs, 8,000 movies, and many many more
