Fujitsu crams 1Tb into 1 inch

The engineers at Fujitsu have managed a breakthrough which would allow the company to produce hard drives with 1Tb of data per square inch. This figure is almost seven times the density of the latest perpendicular recording drives. The technology behind this is referred to by Fujitsu as “patterned media” – it uses anodised aluminium to create a pattern of holes, each holding a portion of magnetic material used to store a single bit of data, with the aluminium oxide around each hole magnetically insulating it. Fujitsu is continuing to work on this technology, aiming for 4Tb per square inch by 2010.Source: Reg Hardware

@naysayers... don't judge his pr0n collection as bad until you've seen it! Perhaps he has ALREADY cut out the rubbish stuff, and he has really got THAT MUCH GOOD STUFF! (I guess with super HDD video at 50GB per shot this is possible)

Wow.

Personally, I'd use if for my ultra-hi-res scans of my stamp collection. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stamp_collecting

LOL :roll:
