We're now staring down the barrel of 1TB of data on a single optical disc. Fujifilm have developed a new recording method which is reportedly capable of delivering up to 1TB per disc.

This new method reportedly combines a "two-photon absorption material" with "heat-mode recording" - as much as it sounds like Superman's heat vision, it's not - but it's close. The recording process involves creating "irreversible" changes to the media, which would most likely mean we won't see rewritable media in 1TB, unfortunately..."
