Not Blue,also Not Red

When blue ray and red ray disk technology is a it's highest, another technological advancement is at hand. Pioneer claims that they have created a 16 layer disk with 25 gb in each layer with a total of 400 gb in one CD. Amazing!, I never thought that it would be more powerful than my hard disk.

The company believes that the technology could “greatly reduce the number of discs to be used and therefore contribute to the conservation of resources.”Pioneer did not say which technology its new discs are based upon and did not even mention whether blue laser or red laser technologies were employed. However, Pioneer stated that the 16-layer discs would be “compatible” with current BD discs.

In a press release, Pioneer simply stated that “this development has bolstered Pioneer's confidence in the feasibility of a large-capacity optical disc, which is expected to become necessary in the near future.” For now, the company has only succeeded in creating a 16-layer read-only optical disc, but the company believes that it can transfer the technology to recordable discs as well.

Making 16 layers isn't easy as that, they also have to consider crosstalks and bit disorganization. The Storage tachnology is fast emerging, the compact disk you own now which only holds 700 mb may be replaced by a more advanced, more powerful, and expect it to reach for a tera of bytes in one disk...
