There may be more life in current DVD technology yet with Australian scientists revealing they have unlocked the potential for DVDs to hold 10,000 times their current limit.
The scientists from Swinburne University have achieved this by adding two extra dimensions for the discs to hold data on, one being the colour spectrum and the other being polarisation. Polarisation is achieved by layering data at different degrees.
There is still work to be done as the researchers are yet to determine the recording speed of the discs. They estimate we won't be seeing this technology for around five years. Korean company Samsung has signed off a deal on the research.
