In a paper in the journal Science, the team at IBM's Almaden lab in California outline ways to make the building blocks of the novel storage medium.

The capacity of MP3 players could increase 100 times from present levels.

But the IBM team say racetrack memory is still seven to eight years away from commercial use.

But if memory capacity is doubling every 18 months then in seven and a half years time we'll already have memory that's got 32x as much capacity as we have now, meaning that this is only going to be a relatively measly triple the capacity.
