You know how a car is supposed to be a safe vehicle when it’s equipped with a solid state drive?
Well, imagine if it could be something a little more extreme.
The future of hard drives is here.
According to a new report by The Next Big Thing, it could mean a lot more than the usual hard drive.
The study, which was published in IEEE Transactions on Systems, Manpower and Cybernetics, analyzed how hard drives will adapt to new threats, such as climate change.
The report describes a scenario where a car with a hard drive was hit by a large truck, and had to be destroyed to save the life of the driver.
The driver had to run over the truck, using the drive as a shield against the truck’s wheels.
The crash left a massive dent in the driver’s hard drive and left the driver with a permanent scar.
While the driver was not seriously injured, the hard drive took a significant amount of damage.
The researchers estimate the total hard drive damage to be between 1,600 and 2,000 GBP (about $1,600-$1,900).
“This hard drive’s capacity to handle a massive collision will be limited by the physical constraints of the physical device and its physical environment,” said researcher Adam Tackett in a statement.
“For instance, a hard-drive may only be able to accommodate the volume of data it holds and a single file on it.
The same hard drive may only hold up to 10GB of data at a time, but with such limited space to store data, the data is unlikely to be of any practical use.
And the drive’s physical capacity may be reduced by the number of times the drive is used, which means the drive can lose all data it can hold before it dies.”
If the hard drives can withstand the impact of the collision, the report estimates the hard-drives will be able withstand the expected 1,000 million collision-induced magnetic field shifts each year.
The drive could be able recover from these forces and become a valuable tool in the future, even if it’s not used for daily driving.
If the drive were to become a permanent part of the vehicle, it would likely be made of a durable material.
The study notes that, due to the size of the hard disk, it may take up to 200 years for the drive to be completely replaced.
According to The Next Good Future, the technology is already being used in the automotive industry, where hard drives are being installed in vehicles from BMWs to Mercedes.
The company says hard drives with this capability could be in the market as early as 2019.
