Ibm 12 Atom Storage Device Proposal

Apparently, a bit would be determined by the orientation of the 12 atoms. Definitely reaching the 1-bit-per-atom theoretical limit.

Pretty amazing, and is more amazing if you think we can one day control sub-atom particles too.
Yeah, actually it got me to thinking about whether you could take it down to an atom size but then somehow store more information than a bit by giving it a higher base.... not sure how it would be done, but maybe you could make different elements represent different numbers or something.

Wow, this is really interesting. Hopefully it will hit the market in the next 10 years.
Yeah, hopefully, we'll have to see.
I actually find it kind of interesting to note that it is only ~160 times denser than NAND... for some reason I thought it would be denser than that.
Another thing, I wonder if these will be more or less reliable than other hard drives. And another question is how fast it would be.
