Every now and then I read a piece of news that makes me sit back and go, 'Holy shit, we're in the future.' This announcement from Keio University in Tokyo (via Electronista) is one of those stories. A team of researchers at the school, working with Toshiba, have managed a major breakthrough in SSD technology. They've found a way to reduce SSD size by 90% while increasing their efficiency by 70%.
These stamp-sized SSDs hold an astounding 1 TB of data. They are made out of 128 NAND flash memory and use radio communication to cut down on production costs. Data transfer speeds are said to be around 2GB per second. The team expects this technology to be ready for production by 2012.(Photo from CrunchGear)
