“5D” storage could hold 500TB on a CD-sized drive

0


Blu-rays are made that way. Using high-speed lasers, the researchers created a new data storage technology that could write and hold 500TB of data on a CD-sized glass disc. 5D storage technology has higher write speeds which could make it feasible for large scale archiving projects. Each file uses three layers of nanoscale dots. The size, orientation and position of the points in the three standard dimensions constitute the five “dimensions”.

This type of optical storage is not, but there have been issues in the past including slow write speeds. The new technique has dramatically speeded up this process, to around 230KB per second. And, yes, it sounds pretty slow, but it could provide a way to save data, basically forever. It was estimated that the storage medium could withstand temperatures up to 1000 degrees C and last 13.8 billion years at room temperature without degrading.

Fun, but pushing the boundaries of technology.

Donda

So what is it? Well, it’s basically a little puck-shaped computer dedicated to the remix of Kanye’s latest album. Using it, you can change the volume of, or tracks, in the songs on Donda. For example, if you were wondering what “Off the Grid” would sound like as an instrument, you could just lower your vocals. Terrence O’Brien reluctantly tested it.

Thanks to a few early hints in iOS 15.1, the latest headphones from Beats come as no surprise. The company has officially launched its latest model: the $ 200 Beats Fit Pro. Similar in design to the Studio Buds that arrived earlier this year, this new pair offers Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) as well as nearly all of the functionality of Apple’s third-generation AirPods. Its shape seals your ear, so ANC and transparency mode are available. The bass levels are sufficient without being too powerful for a sound profile significantly better than the previous model from Beats. Our helmet expert Billy Steele seems to like them.

Apple is also working on the same functionality for its watch.

Apple plans to unveil a feature called crash detection for iPhones and watches, according to a report. The feature supposedly uses sensors like the accelerometer built into Apple devices. Apple has reportedly been working on this for several years and tested it using real world data.

Years ago, Google introduced a similar feature for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 4 through its personal safety app which can detect when you’ve been in a car accident and alert emergency services. Even GM has been offering it for years in its cars with OnStar and recently introduced crash detection on smartphones through the OnStar Guardian app.
