    For the curious:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_rope_memory

    According to the article, using this technology, you could store 2.5MB of data in 1 cubic metre. So 1TB would take up approximately 400 cubic meters. 5TB would be 2000 cubic metres (imagine 20m x 10m x 10m object). By comparison, a modern day 5TB 2.5″ HDD is 132 cubic *centimetres* (or 0.000132 cubic metres).

    (dumb?)Question, if the copper is touching each other with no insulation, won’t signals get crossed? Is that not how it works?

    If those connectors look familiar, yup, they are D-subminature. Which [we still use today but date back to 1952.](http://www.dansdata.com/gz061.htm).

    it’s still amazing to me to see LOL ( little old lady ) memory. this memory was made by garment makers from a different era, in a factory that’s probably long gone.
