  • World's 'smallest hard drive

    This is very impressive, in fact almost defies comprehension.

    "Now a team of scientists in the Netherlands has taken this to the ultimate extreme. Through the manipulation of single atoms they have made the world's smallest hard drive. It is so dense the technology could store all the world's books on device the size of a postage stamp."

    World's 'smallest hard drive' means every book written can now be stored on a stamp

          Ahh, cool! But how big is the device you need to read and write from it?

          Edit: Love the Feynman quote idea!

            Yes very, very cool. We may not see one of these for a long time.

            In its current form the memory can operate only in very clean vacuum conditions and at liquid nitrogen temperature (-196.15 degrees)

              Feynman:
              What would happen if we could arrange the atoms one by one the way we want them?"
              Anyone seen the the movie "The Fly"?
