Submission + - Mempile's Terabyte Optical Disc (tgdaily.com)

crimson30 writes: "Mempile, a company in Isreal, is working on optical discs with a 1TB capacity that look to be more affordable than typical HVDs (~$3000 per writer, ~$30-60 per disc vs ~$10,000 per writer, ~$100 per disc). Currently, they have prototypes capable of storing 800GB and researchers suggest that the technology will lead to such discs capable of storing 5TB."
