The rise of wearable devices like smartwatches have spurred the world's electronics makers to miniaturize their already tiny components even further. And TDK has managed to create what it's claiming is the world's smallest Bluetooth module, which also happens to be incredibly energy efficient.

TDK is known for designing really utilitarian, retro 80's futuristic audio equipment -- black, gold, hard lines, Terminator, Burton's Batman, TDK -- that encourages you to show it off without feeling like a showoff. And they've done it again. This time, with a pair of headphones that'll cradle your head and a new speaker cube that wirelessly charges your phone.
TDK has announced a new hard drive at CEATEC that manages to fit 260 GB of data into a 1.8-inch form factor. Using their prototype TMR head, TDK is able to attain a surface recording density of 803 gigabits per square inch, besting Toshiba's previous 378 gigabits per square inch. The leap was possible by combining the TMR head with recent perpendicular magnetic recording techniques, and TDK personnel still think its possible to reach 1 terabit per square inch.
