OROM

(Optical ROM) An optical storage technology from Ioptics, Inc., Bellevue, WA, that never came to fruition. Designed for portable devices, it was expected to provide 10 ms access to 128MB in a thin, plastic 2.25x1.75" data card that connects via PC Card or USB. Using stationary organic LEDs (OLEDs) that shine through 5000 "data patches" on the card, which are 2D images that each hold 32KB of data, OROM cards were to be pressed in a manner similar to CDs.


Reading a Patch
OROM used no moving parts. The bottom picture shows the light from one organic LED shining up through one 32-KB data patch to the diffractive lens, which focused the modulated light toward the reading mechanism. (Images courtesy of Ioptics, Inc.)

Si bien la posicion de Orom refleja parte del pensamiento europeo, teniendo una nocion amplia del fenomeno que representa la bibliotecologia y estudio de la informacion, sobre todo porque hace recuento de las diversas corrientes que han influido en el desarrollo de la bibliotecologia y estudio de la informacion, eso no quiere decir que pueda ser mejor que la norteamericana, ya que al decir que el origen de esta disciplina se encuentra en el siglo XIX, soslaya el hecho de que el objeto de estudio de la bibliotecologia y estudio de la informacion trasciende ese siglo.
