Every year we are witnessing multiple technological breakthroughs that make information so much more accessible. GE’s innovation in storing data has world-changing potential and in many ways guarantees a massive new wave of improvement to human lives.
Scientists at GE created storing data of 500GB onto a single DVD-sized disc! To make it more visual, that’s 500 CDs on one disc, or 4000 x more information than a human brain retains in life time! This innovation is in the laboratory phase.
“This is significant. Just imagine being able to put all this Information on a disc,” said Brian Lawrence, the manager of GE’s holographic project.
In the video above he explains how his team designed the system. Check it out.
