Who uses physical DVD drives anymore? Well those of you who still do will be happy to hear that they are about to get a significant boost thanks to nano technology.
The National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) in Taiwan and Swinburne University of Technology (SUT) in Australia teamed up to increase the storage capacity of your standard DVD drive. The new technology has improved data storage density from 1.1 terabits (Tb) per cubic centimeter to 2.75, which can allow a Blu-ray dual-layer DVD-ROM to write in 80 times its original storage capacity.
If you still use them, that’s pretty good news!
