The Future of Things has had a look at Mempile's TeraDisc technology, a big yellow DVD that may soon obsolete the 2 DVD formats currently fighting for supremacy.  They use their laser to create 200 virtual layers, five microns apart, each containing approximately 5 GB of data.  Their test also show about a 50 year lifespan for data on the disk, but it is a shame about the colour.

"Revolutionary new optical-storage technology currently under development will allow the equivalent of 250,000

high-quality MP3s or more than 115 DVD-quality movies and about 40 HD movies on a single CD-size medium. At 200

layers a disc, future versions of the technology will make it possible to store up to 5TB of data on one disc—the

only question is, when will we find the time to watch all this content?"
