But recently, novel technology has the potential to expand both of those capacities dramatically – much more than any currently existing form of data storage – and can revolutionise data storage in the process. That novel technology is one that we are already familiar with – DNA.

Saturday, 31 March 2018, New York, NY – If you remember our last blog post, we mentioned the possibility of a global highway system that could exist by the year 2050. This potential highway system also reminded us of another massive engineering project. A man named Chris Gray, from West Yorkshire, England, created a proposal for a global metro system that is meant to make travel quick and seamless. The system connects pretty much every city of note in the world, and, when you take a look at the proposal, is actually pretty cool.
