Forget Discs And Get Into The Cube!

Forget Discs And Get Into The Cube!

Just came across this article in the September 1991 issue page 6.

I remember at the time reading it and thinking how futuristic,will the world of films,hi-fi and audi ever be remotely like that!

How times have changed.

The comment from Virgin's Simon Burke back in 1991 about the prospect of technology like the cube becoming reality is interesting in the light of today's world of torrents,file sharing and so on:

'I welcome all inventions,We've sen lots of new technology in the business over the years,but as long as people want to buy music,someone will have to be around to sell it.'.......

How times and technology have changed since then!

 

What of the cube? Anyone heard anything?

Any news of Mr Pete Renzepis and his progress with future inventions?

 

Regards

 

Pete

RE: Forget Discs And Get Into The Cube!

I remember hearing about this. On Tomorrow's World, I think. Every now and again I wonder what happened to this principle - and how much harder it must have been to implement than originally thought.

 

Would be great to know what happened to this tech, though.

Future WHF article?

It seems the technology was still being investigated in 2006...
