A Single Drop Of Water Could Store One Million Copies Of Movies In DNA, Unbelievable!

Inventions and discoveries have no bound, and it just proved out to be true when a Technicolor scientist surrounded by the latest virtual technology inspected a vial containing a few droplets of water and one million copies of a famous Hollywood History movie. Yes, that is true. Going back in time to "The Wizard Of Oz" and "Gone with The Wind" that bought three-strip cameras into existence the company has come a long way since the Hollywood's golden age. And now that the company has come long enough to be celebrating its centenary, it is here with an awesome innovation - the encoding of movies into artificial DNA i.e. non-biological DNA. A DNA is an unimaginably small collection of almost 90,0000 molecules fit into one strand of human hair. Jean Bolot, the vice-president for research and innovation held a vial that had a million copies of 1902 French silent movie "A Trip to The Moon," which is known to be the first movie to use visual effects.

This is the vial containing few droplets of water.

The vial contains a million copies of an old movie that is encoded into DNA.

It was displayed during a media tour at Technicolor's Sunset Boulevard studios in Hollywood.

This happened after celebrating their centenary in Hollywood.

Converting movies into man made DNA brings huge advantages, says Bolot.

He adds that with these vials, the archives of all Hollywood studios could be easily fit into a single lego brick rather than occupying square kilometers of space.

Unlike our traditional storage devices, it overcomes the disadvantage of turning the disk corrupt with time.

With the switchover to digital technology, there have been a lot of changes and a lot of companies have come down with their innovations. But Technicolor has managed to bring in innovations very easily with higher standards.
