Mp3 players to have 500,000 Gb of Capacity in the future
In the future mp3 players might have around 500,000 GB of capacity. Scientist have developed a molecule sized switch which can increase the capacity by 150,000 times. Because of the switch, 500,000 GB can be stored in to one square inch. Current standards fit only 3.3 GB.
This project is being developed by Professor Lee Cronin and Dr Malcolm Kadodwala at the University of Glasgow. By placing the switch on a surface of gold or carbon, upto billion transistors can be fitted on a single chip. This way the capacity of mp3 players can be increased. Lets see what we get to see in the future but it definitely sounds a great innovation.
