Jerusalem (Israel) - A company called Mempile has developed a prototype storage device which uses a DVD-like disc capable of eventually storing up to 1 Terabyte worth of data in a semi-transparent disc. It has 200 physical layers of about 5GB each on this disc. That's enough to store more than 250,000 MP3s, 115 full-length DVD movies, or 40 full-length HD movies on each disc. Researchers believe the technology will yield multi-TB discs that could fit in your coat pocket.
