With CeraByte, ceramics has now also arrived in the digital age. In cooperation with the Vienna University of Technology, a Gmundner ceramic artist developed data carriers made of glass ceramics that are intended to enable CO2-neutral, permanent storage of cold data.
The starting point for the development of the CeraByte technology was the “Memory of Mankind” project, a kind of time capsule in a salt mine. For this purpose, contents are stored on ceramic tablets and kept deep inside the mountain for future generations. This “archive of humanity” includes information on the location of nuclear repositories, dissertations, science and art awards, editorials, books, blogs, and personal stories.
