So Sony comes along and releases an updated version of its magnetic tape data cartridge, that holds....are you ready for this....keep in mind this is a physical piece of magnetic tape....185 Terabytes!!! More specifically 148GB per square inch. That's insane.
Tape works by coating plastic film with magnetic coating, where bytes of data are stored in the coating. There were limitations with how many bytes could be stored, which is why you'll typically hear the term 8 or 16 bit recording, most commonly associated with audio files, or music. Now, Sony has engineers a super high density crystal polymer that can be layered within the same amount of physical space, to store bytes in. Basically, instead of one row of 8, you have multiple rows of millions. Pretty cool stuff
