Basically, the disc is clear, and information is stored on different layers within the disc which would greatly increase its storage capacity relative to a traditional disc with a single metal layer.

Very interesting! However, let's look at Moore's law.
It seems we are surpassing this? I'm not claiming to be a specialist in this field, all I am doing is asking people to help me understand how this technology has become available to all of us!
Holographic data storage is a potential replacement technology in the area of high-capacity data storage currently dominated by magnetic and conventional optical data storage. Magnetic and optical data storage devices rely on individual bits being stored as distinct magnetic or optical changes on the surface of the recording medium. Holographic data storage overcomes this limitation by recording information throughout the volume of the medium and is capable of recording multiple images in the same area utilizing light at different angles

Wouldn't that mean that hardrives themselves could be almost limitless as well?
And technology itself should be commonly owned collectively. I treat all patents as crimes against humanity.

Hey folks, I had read part of the article a while back and then I stumbled onto here and saw the same thing super DVDs. I have posted the research article that describes how this is possible:
If you folks want more cool stuff just wiki holographic versatile discs. The thing I dont like is that the people who make the discs try to milk us out of all the money by slowly releasing low technology things and making the money off of it first before releasing something better.
Look at the exponential factor in data storage
3.5 in floppy to cd = factor of increase 500
cd to dvd = factor of increase 7
dvd to blu-ray = factor of increase about 7
There should have been a factor of increase of 500 from cd to new storage medium:
700mb x 500 = 350 GB
They are slowly trying to milk us of our money. I will not be surprised if we have to wait 20 years for this.
