Mechanical Storage Goes Low Power
Researchers from the LG Electronics Institute of Technology in Korea have devised a very low-power method of reading bits of information stored in areas of film that measure 50 nanometers, or 20 times narrower than an E. coli bacterium. The method could eventually be used in ultrahigh-density mechanical storage devices for portable systems like notebook computers, personal digital assistants and digital cameras.
