Storing Data in Liquid

Researchers from the University of Michigan and New York University are working on a new type of hard drive that could enable them to store up to 1 Terabyte of data in a teaspoon full of liquid.

Only in the research and testing phase at the moment, this could lead to much larger capacity hard drives and possibly different form factors of drive.

Nano particles are attached to a central sphere, and by using heat the particles can rearrange themselves into predictable configurations, it is only early days for this new type of data storage, but it could have great potential and lead to higher reliability of hard drives.
