The engineers at Fahrenheit 2451 believe our current methods of media storage—disks, hard drives, and the cloud—won’t be sustainable. Hardware is damageable and digital platforms rely on the assumption that updated software will be compatible with current technology. Nanoforms offer a long-lasting alternative to storing data by laser-engraving your irreplaceable photos and documents on a sapphire plate. They say each Nanoform holds about 2,500 pictures/pages of text to be exact.
