|Heavy hard drives
In 1957 this 'Deuce Drum Store' could store
32,768 bytes. It basically did the same job as a modern computer's hard drive. The storage device didn't use nanotechnology - it used an electrical current on a magnetic surface to record and read data.
But 32, 768 bytes isn't very much. It would only be enough to save one Word document on your PC.
