Storing data in three dimensions with racetrack memory

Work from researchers at IBMs Almaden Research Laboratory suggests that a new type of computer memory storage may be on the horizon. Currently, computer memory comes in one of two flavors: solid state RAM or magnetic hard disk drives, both of which rely on what's effectively two-dimensional storage. The new method adds some useful features to memory storage by extending the physical storage into the third dimension.
