    i belive that the next step in data storage is not in magnetic strips (hard drives) but in tatooing micro stips of information into crystals and using laser readers specialy constructed to read the micro tatoo.

    terabytes? ha, something like that would hold a terabyte of information in a cm. sized spacing. seeing asthough there would be a 3D space now unlike modern hard drives wich are 2D and inefficiant.

    just think one crystal could hold all the information on the world wide web.
    though the cost for such a thing is unrealistic i think it deserves further study.

    why a crystal? a simple piece of paper maybe.

    paper? are you joking? a crystal has the superluminus capabilities for faster information reading and storing.

    Why does it have to be superluminus? Would you mind explaining in full detail your idea?

    mm.. thought it was pritty well explained in the first post, but ok , using a computer and a laser reader specialy contructed to read micro tatoo's inside a crystal for the purpose for storing data, and the crystal itself, superluminus for the prism effect, would be capible of reading vast ammounts of information stored in a 3D crystaline space in a microfaction of the time that modern hard drives read data, using not even 1/1,000,000,000 of the space.

    its a pritty simple concept once you think about it.

    could even make flaws inside the crystals and store the data inside the flaws, while using the prism effect to speed read the data, seeing as though a laser reader is basicly just a light. and since the tatooing will be at the microscopic level the storage space will be astronomicly increased,
    though the laser reader would need to be vastly more complex.

    You are at least 15 years behind the times, to my certain memory this has been demonstrated by IBM engineers at their research facility.
    I'll try and find a link when I have some time..

    Here it is -

    quantum memory would be the way to go. when they crack it fully

    Or it could be down to the quantum 'egg' but nobody's cracked that either.

    mmm.. verry interesting, i had no idea they have came soo far in holographic information storage, makes me wonder why i have never heard of this or seen the deminstrations.

    if possible can you find a link to a video of the deminstration?
    also did anyone hear when they say it will be applicable to commercial use?
