1 Helium Filled Hard Drives By Henry Jenkins

2 Historical Background IBM 1956 launches first hard drive 1980 Hard Drives begin slowly fading out 1986-1998 Mac vs. PC The Helium Hard drive

3 Advancements in HDDs Year/function19561980 HDDs1988 HDDsPresent Day SizeTwo Refrigerators About the size of a notebook, but thicker Small enough to fit into a large desktop computer such as the MAC Small enough to fit in lap tops, or externally Capacity 5 million 6 bit characters 10 MB100 MB1 TB=1000 GB HeatVery HotHotWarmModerately Warm

4 The Science Helium is far less dense then oxygen Faster speeds Higher storage space Western Digital

5 Positives Faster speeds More Storage 41% cooler than regular hard drives Faster RPMS

6 Negatives Expensive Little Competition No Substitutes One Company

7 Can they impact the world? Hard to tell now No competition Costly Release in 2013 Large enough advancements?
