1,000Gb on a Single Disk!

Researchers at the University of Central Florida have developed a new technology that will allow users to record and store massive amounts of data, thousands of Gigabytes, of data on a single disk or perhaps a small cube using Belfield’s Two-Photon 3-D Optical Data Storage system.

“For a while, the community has been able to record data in photochromic materials in several layers,” Belfield said. “The problem was that no one could figure out how to read out the data without destroying it. But we cracked it.”

Imagine being able to store 500 movies or an entire library of data on a single disk!

The process involves shooting two different wavelengths of light onto the recording surface. The use of two lasers creates a very specific image that is sharper than what current techniques can render. Depending on the colour (wavelength) of the light, information is written onto a disk. The information is highly compacted, so the disk isn’t much thicker. It’s like a typical DVD.

12 Days of Christmas (and some) – Prize number 27

12 Days of Christmas‘ competition.

Here is the 27th Prize in our competition. As you can see we have now gone beyond the original 12 days that we planned but we have had far too many prizes to cram into just 12 days, which is a good thing! We’ll keep on going with 2-3 prizes per day until we are done. We’ll have give away around 40 prizes once we get to the end!

I suspect that this is one of the more eagerly awaited prizes! So here we have a brilliant Qtek 8500 Smartphone to give away! This prize is worth over £200!

Expansys Qtek 8500

The Qtek 8500 is the first Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone to be available in a clamshell form factor. It is also the thinnest Window Mobile Smartphone on the market and still packed with all the features of the Qtek 8310 (i-mate SP5).

This clamshell Smartphone offers a comprehensive range of office functions and incorporates a high quality camera and personal music player that allow you to take full advantage of any free time.

Dedicated music buttons ensure that you have an easy to use personal soundtrack always within reach. The secondary 1.2” TFT LCD on the front cover keeps you always informed of the time / date, identity of callers, and what music is playing.
