In Brief

Blu-rays may soon be obsolete with the development of a new technology.

Sony is developing a next generation laser for optical disks that may replace the current Blu-ray format. The blue-violet laser fires extremely fast bursts of thin beams of light to read a disk with 20 times the capacity of Blu-ray, which means a blue-violet laser based player can have more than 50 movies on one disk. May be we should hold off buying a Blu-ray player for now?
