Not sure if anyone else has seen this, but I thought it was rather interesting.

Yes I saw that, very exciting and I hope it makes it to commercial release.

It's optic, better transfer rate than a SSD maybe?

@Cognisant

I have no idea what the transfer rates are, but I think the goal is long term storage of large amounts of data. Not sure that retrieval times really matter with that.

If I'm going to store my consciousness on one of these things it matters.

I'll even be picky about shape & colour.
