When it comes to data storage devices, Sony might just have come out with a design that will completely change how much information people can put on one cartridge. The new design allows people to hold up to 185 terabytes, which is 74 times more that of the storage devices on the market today.

The design came about with a collaboration between Sony and IBM, and with a little innovation and brainstorming, the team came up with a device that could change the way people store their data. Considering how quickly space tends to go on computers where people load a lot of photos and videos, having a device such as this could also change the functioning of other pieces of technology on the market.
