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.

    This is really exciting news as i am a muzik lover as world 86.7% populaion is this is a spectacular innovation for all the music addicts.

    500TBs of space! Sheesh, I can’t even fill my 80GB iPod upto 2GB lol.

    BTW, great share! Keep the news coming! 🙂

    This is unbelievable! Just think of the implications for laptops and mobile phones.

    I say a technology for projecting a keyboard that you can type on. Then Texas Instruments are crating a 30″ full colour projector that fits in a mobile phone.

    Just image a mobile phone that projects a monitor onto a white wall, a keyboard onto the table and uses one of these chip as shared hard disk and memory. It would be the perfect travel computer!

    500,000 GB? OMG thats unimaginable. What to do with such huge amount of space?

  5. @ForestParks
    Thanks for the great info

    YOu are right, currently it is unimaginable. But in future who knows

    500.000 GB? That’s great!…I can’t wait to have an mp3 player with such capacity.

    Me too. Wonder what we will do with that much space.
