    After Blu-Ray? Holographic Versatile Disc

    Link: Holographic Versatile Disc - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Apparently there are competing formats [Tapestry Media]

    Sounds like another protracted format war might be in the offing [VHS vs BetaMAX, Blu-Ray vs HD DVD]

    Might be pretty to use these as offsite backups. 6TB is allot!

    You would still need nine discs to backup your 50TB HDD.

    Note that the device requires a 1Watt laser. They wouldn't be allowed in the UK, as it is 1000x more powerful than the legal limit for general use in the UK (and most of Europe). They'd be class 4 - meaning they are the most dangerous power of lasers and could be used to burn skin, or instantly blind someone.

    They're gonna have to reduce the power of these before releasing this as a product.
