I can remember one of my high school teachers telling us about a 120 GB hard drive that was being developed that was smaller than a wallet! When I heard this i simply did not believe it. At that time the smallest hard drive I had ever seen was quite a bit larger than a wallet, and I couldn't imagine a hard drive that could fit in your pocket. Pretty soon we had 8GB flash drives! This was pretty exciting because you could fit hours of mp3's on one of these. Earlier this week Sandisk released a 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive that is smaller than a dime. This is pretty amazing to think that the memory actually takes up even less space as most of the space is the actual usb drive itself and not the memory. The read speeds for the drive are a blazing 130MB per second, and the drive can hold 16 hours of 1080p videos! If this stuff gets any smaller who knows it could pave the way for real biotech!
