World's First Glass CDposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 10/22/2006 01:29:00 PM
Recording engineers in Japan have developed the first glass CD. It costs slightly less than $100 (98,700 yen) to buy one but they last forever.
As glass CDs are completely transparent, information on them can be read perfectly, improving sound quality. They are not affected by heat or humidity and remain in perfect condition forever.
Tests of glass CDs will soon be carried out in Tokyo at Ishimaru Denki in Akihabara and Tower Records in Shibuya. (Mainichi)
