[quote:Anonymous Coward 75867242:MV8zNjk0NTMyXzY2MDcxNzA5Xzk4MTIxOEY=] https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/186797-the-liquid-hard-drive-that-could-store-a-terabyte-of-data-in-a-tablespoon-of-fluid A team of materials science researchers from the US may have just made the first breakthrough that could make so-called “soft matter” a viable data storage medium — at some incredible storage densities, too. According to the new research, microscopic particles suspended in liquid could be used to encode the same 1s and 0s stored on solid hard drive platters today. They theorize that clusters of these particles could one day be used to store up to 1TB of data in one tablespoon of liquid hard drive. The term “soft matter” is almost as fuzzy as it sounds. It can refer to liquids, foams, polymers, and even some biomaterials. What all soft matter have in common (and the important bit here) is that they have predictable physical behaviors at various temperatures — that usually means changing shape on the molecular level. The team behind the liquid hard drive, led by Sharon Glotzer and David Pine, used a type of colloidal suspension of specially designed dimpled nanoparticles. Being a colloidal suspension means the particles are not permanently dissolved in the solution and retain their expected properties (i.e. soft matter). [/quote]
The distributive blockchain, the stellarator, solidstate batteries and citizenship bequeathed to A.I.
Saudi Arabia finds itself as the pinnacle focus as the world finds itself in a tectonic shift.
A shift precipitated by power paradigms both material and psychological.
Political leaders vie for relevance as structures decentralize.
A zero point before the collapse of potentials into probabilities and further into decisive action or outcome.
Why Saudi: Massive investment potential coupled with instability in their current output focus.
What are the common currents?: Money, its delivery, stability or inability to destabilize through currency manipulation. Also the coupling of receipt, ownership and ease of transfer between the two of or by multiple parties contractually. (The blockchain).
Power generation and storage....fusion technology and the ability to distribute and store with quick charging capacity.(The stellarator and solidstate batteries)
Russia, China and the U.S seek the investment and as such seek a common future while assuming the breakfall of Saudi investment potential as the world heads to further instability as current power structures and beliefs are shorn asunder.
What will be birthed as the new power consensus/currency?
Same Boss as the old boss unless the realization of decentralization falls upon deaf ears; as it well might seeing the associations being tied to these emergent technologies.
In the End, as always, a battle for not just hearts and minds but how we perceive the embodiment of these unfolding structures and to whom we place import upon in the new compact.
