Jesus f*ckery. Imagine the amount of stuff you could fit on that beast.If they used it to make games on, they'd be graphically amazing and goddam lengthy.

They'll be pricey i bet, very pricey.

Today this and tomorrow whole computers made of living tissue. Bio-engeenering pr0n ftw.

But I don't see how this could be useful, other that having superultrabbq high quality stuff. Is there anything that could take advantage of such storage space? Plus we would have to look into ways for having an equally big transfer rate.

It's all very nice, but tbh it's just pointless. Could you imagine waiting for 50TB to burn to a dvd?

And everyone went "What the hell could possibly fill all that space"

I'm sure when this is released computers will be eons ahead of todays and the drives will be more than capable of reading and writing to and fro the discs at amazing speeds. That's if it ever gets off the ground i guess.

18 minutes of Ultra High Definition takes up to 3,5 Terrabytes. Equivalent to an holographic versatile disc which is currently in development.

But still... holly sh*t.

With a hundred trillion cells, each one storing 6GB of data in its DNA, the body of a typical living animal stores a grand total of 600YB, making it the world's most redundant storage device.


Gosh, I'm so full of useless information...

All the people saying "Who could use that much space?", the NFL uses over 100 Terabytes of space for each game they film for instant replays and such.

This would rock. Instead of having a DVD drive AND a regular hard drive, you would only need one. Got movies on it? Take it out and throw it in your DVD player. Who needs TV Out cables? Got games? Take it out and carry it over to your mates place. Got important data? Backing up would be easy.

Hold up, though. Can they be written and rewritten on the fly like a HD?

Ummm, its gonna be crazy expensive. And the general public won't even get to look at those things.

We don't have a use for it, their do most companies. Far too much room to fill for even games. Even if they did come up with enough content to fill even a fourth of it, it would be mostly pointless filler; same goes for the movie industry.

The only people who could possibly use this are large networks. Or file back up systems like Googles Gdrive idea.

Look at it logically boy, the technology isn't even ready yet, and won't be for a few years. The size of games and movies/audio is ever increasing due to better quality and quantity. We constantly need larger storage mediums, and this could be the answer. Think about it, you could store videos and pictures that have immense dimensions, songs with an overwhelming bit rate and so forth. Every time a new storage medium is developed that exceeds the current models there are always people like you who claim that there is no purpose to the device. Well there is, an entire workplace could work off the single storage disc.

May not have a use now, but in the future it will. Not for a long time.

But anyway, what about that 100 TB disc that was hoovering around the place a few years ago? Hard Drives are going to be the cheapest, best way of storing things for a while, something like that won't have any use for years. Most big games still haven't exceed a single layer DVD yet. Back around 2001-2002, most computers were being shipped with 40-80GB Hard Drives. Even today as long as you don't download heaps of stuff or store gaint files, you'll get by. 250GB is about the standard now. It will be a few years before something like TB hard drives become mainstream, and by then, I doubt we'll have other uses for them apart from just being able to store a stupid amount of stuff!

HD on computers and TV Tuners are slowly coming in mainsteam too, and HD can take up alot of space. They better start bringing out some TB drives soon, 'cause i'm running out of space tounge.gif I'm barely managing with 120GBs, I have a whole spindle full or around 30 or so full DVDs with movies and games. One of my friends has draws of DVDs smile.gif

That won't be even out for years. Some people have only started with HD as it is now.

it woud cost a few billion for the first disc and 100 to make the rest (each) and you woud need a 1000000000000X speed to write to it

P.S. these new cds and my new cd drive are grate (386mb per minute(f*ck me))
