Japanese tech giant Hitachi has taken storage capacity to the next level with its SVOD (Stacked Volumetric Optical Disks) technology.

It all starts with super slim DVD discs which are just 92 micrometers thick and these double sided discs hold 9.4GB. Pack 100 of these discs in a 6.4cm catridge and you have 940 GB of storage.

According to the online source, Hitachi are preaparing to take it to next level by replacing double sided DVD's with Blu-Rays. The result is a 5X boost to storage space as a double sided Blu-Ray disc holds 50GB.

Although the source states that the Blu-Ray model is still in development stage, the DVD version will go on sale by early 2007 with a 940GB cartridge costing about US$340.

Ooh now there's an idea.

Hmm....I can make a psu go boom, but we'd need to keep its name secret otherwise we'd get lawyers on our backs.

Yeah suppose. It would need to be an ebuyer one or sommit tho. Most half decent units have over-load protection so they just cut out.

That ebuyer one i managed to blow up just started squealing more and more rather than turning off. In then end the +12v rail ended up at 8.9v before catching fire
