During my cyber-travels today I came across this animation from hitachi that attempts to explain perpendicular technology in hard drives in a very interesting and lively way. Thought I’d share the video
Simply click on the above picture and let the flash animation load. Don’t forget to turn up the volume!
On the other hand, if you want a more scientific explanation of perpendicular recording technology or if you just want to know how hard drives work, here are some links:
- Perpendicular Recording
- The Superparamagnetic Effect
- How Hard Disks Work
If you enjoyed the “Go Perpendicular” animation, here’s another educational video from hitachi.
