Thanks to nifty lasers, Sharp has created the first 100GB Blu-ray disc. The new Blu-ray format, called VR-100BR1, uses a new triple-layer standard that allows storage space of up to 128GB on single-write discs and 100GB on rewritable discs.
The new max is double the space of the current cap, 50GB, and will give you a whole lotta space for more useless extras on Blu-ray. The first 100GB discs will be available in Japan later this month for $US60(!). Enjoy your time at the top Sharp, either Sony’s upcoming laser or the overall demise of physical media will topple you.
