+ - Panasonic's 100GB Blu-Ray arrives->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "It's not unusual to hear of advances made in some research laboratory that could one day lead to unheard of advances in disc storage, like 1000GB optical media. But it's not so often that we see one of these mutant discs — costing a reported 10,000 yen, or approximately $112 — go on sale. Panasonic's BDXL Blu-Ray discs are re-writable and capable of storing 100GB, thanks to three storage layers. According to this story, it can take more than one and a half hours to fill a disc with a compatible drive."
