White-coated scientists lurk in dust-free rooms, protected from environmental contaminants by massive glass panes and a complex air-recycling system. Amid dozens of labs at the 300,000 square-foot facility, machines of Gilliam-esque oddness and complexity whirr, surrounded by piles of technology it will take years for even a few of us to use.
Some pictures of Seagate's R&D labs. The next upcoming technology is heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR). Lasers are used to heat the platter before being written. The other major development is bit patterning. This allows a magnitude more precise bit and hence more data density.

Perpendicular recording will get up around 1TB per square inch. These two new technologies should get close to 50TB per square inch.
