Folded Space suggests Blu-ray could work with “billions of colors”

There's a bit of technology being introduced this week by the folks at Folded Space that they suggest will allow "Deep Color Content Encoding" that'd be fully backwards-compatible with existing Blu-ray players, allowing 12 bits per color rather than the current 8.

The latter is released, but the former can be stored and then later used for power, including potential in fuel-cell cars. Best of all, the system requires no external power source in order to work its hydrogen-generating magic.
