GE announces it has developed a single disc that can store 500 gigabytes (GB) of data which is equivalent to 100 DVDs

The technology that makes this possible is called micro-holographic.  These new MH disc are the same size as existing DVD discs.

GE believes this technology  will take off because players can be built which are backward compatible with existing DVD and Blu-ray technologies.

GE expects its holographic disc could make it to mass production in 2011 or 2012, and cost less than 10 cents per gigabyte.
