I was bored and I thought you guys might find this interesting.

Scarcely a few months since Blu-ray finally won against HD-DVD in high capacity disk media, we are soon going to see the next generation, able to hold at least 300GB, and is called HVD (Holographic Versatile Disc).

A few articles for your reading pleasure :lookaround::

64 DVDs on a disc: holographic storage to ship

Holographic Versatile Disc - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Enjoy. ;)

And then HVD will be phased out too; isn't everything going purely digital?

This is old news actually, and the time line is not likely to be as "soon" as you make it sound. First off, Blu-ray has quite a ways to go yet before it fully replaces DVD. When you start seeing as many or more Blu-ray movies for rent as you do DVD, then it will be common place. Right now even if you hit Blockbuster as soon as the new releases come out, you're lucky to get a Blu-ray copy because they only get a half dozen or so of the Blu-ray discs per title, vs 100s of DVD copies.

When you add to that the expense of the first holographic disc players and the blank media that supports them, the fact that we're in a recession, and that only the wealthy will be able to afford them when they debut, and it's very possible that tech may take even longer to replace Blu-ray than Blu-ray will DVD.

I know, I was just exaggerating since it seems like stuff goes obsolete pretty fast, like as soon as something is released, its obsolete. :D

To be honest, does anybody owns a blu-ray player? And frequently uses it? And not a PS3, a real player bought for watching movies.

depends if it survives a new format war. If I remember correctly, there was actually an easy way to create roughly 50+gb dvd discs, but this was phased out, as the money invested in blueray and HDdvd was already far too big to loose.

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/01/13/inphase_to_ship_this_year/The drive stores data as holograms [more here] on an optical disk with a 20MB/sec transfer speed and a 50-year lifespan. The drives were said to have a price of $18,000 in April last year, the disks costing $180 each in volume

Similar piece of equipment that we have a price for.

When a holographic disc costs as much as a blu ray drive I think its a safe bet that we won't be seeing those replacing bly ray for a VERY long time.

Don't forget the protein coated disks that can hold terabytes of data.
