    This will be a 3-D Storage, for DVD sized inexpensive Memory Disks, that store 100 times the information of a DVD, or 600+ GB's of information it may be possible to get more out of it. This technology will exceed JPL design parameters for 250GB for future missions at 2006. Plus it will be cheap enough for home users.

    Well...it'll remain inexpensive until EMC starts using it, then they'll still charge hundreds of dollars per gigabyte.

    Actually Steve it will probably replace your DVD in about 6-10 years, on your home computer. The technology exists now all that is needed is a standard and application research.

    Misu Hey, I saw that.

    Every day, it's one step closer to Star Trek. We'll be telling our kids about the days when DVD's could "only" hold about 6 gigs of info. And our kids will be like "only 6 gigs?!? EWWWW, ghetto!"
