Lots of movies and games. A new technology created by the research team at Saga University in Japan has managed to produce a Diamond disk only five centimeters capable of storing one billion Blu-Ray discswhich is exactly equivalent to a little more than 25 million 1TB SSDs.
To understand this incredible feat, this product has enough memory to save the entire catalog of Steam over 6000 times. According to the creators, they have developed a new method to create wafers from diamond called Adamant Namiki Precision Jewelwhich is one of the elements that promises to revolutionize quantum computing.
Regarding storage, in a nutshell it is 25 exabytes, that is, 25,000 petabytes, which could also be said as 25 million terabytes or also 25 billion gigabytes to have a more familiar data. It has been reported that the process for making this disc requires nitrogenan element that, the purer it is, the more capacity it will have to support files.

On the dimensions of the CD, it is known that It has a size of 55 millimeters in diameter, so it should be handled very carefully, because with a light blow the entire internal content could be damaged. So far, the group behind this work mentions that it can only be used with equipment that resists quantum computing, which is still in the stages of exploration and improvement. The following video explains how the process for the composition of the diamond is carried out:
Japan creates a giant robot to fix train tracks
Always one step ahead. Japan is one of the countries that has made the greatest commitment to improving technology in all aspects, since for a long time it has created robots capable of carrying out human tasks, which manage to facilitate some activities that a person could not carry out alone.
During the last week, one of the most recent creations in Japan has become popular on social networks, due to its gigantic size and its peculiar design. In the same style as Wall-E, the famous Disney and Pixar robot that starred in its own movie, a new example is being used to maintain the Japanese railway electrification system, and has managed to repair certain damaged or old train tracks.
This type of android has been described as a heavy aerial work platform, whose main function is to replace common workers in dangerous tasks, with the aim of reducing the risk of accidents. Unlike other robots, this one does not operate with artificial intelligence, but is controlled by an engineer from a cabin or also from a device similar to virtual reality glasses to control movement.
