OhGizmo! » Maxell Releases Holographic Storage Medium:

Forget about Blu-Ray, or HD-DVD… I’ll take holographic disks anytime. Maxell, in a joint venture with InPhase Technologies has announced the release of a Holographic optical recording device that will eventually support cartridges of up to 1.6TB (that’s a “t”, as in 1,600 Gb) with transfer rates reaching 120Mbps.

To put things in perspective, this means that one 5 1/4 inch disk will be able to hold as much information as 63 DVDs.
