TDK unveiled a single-layer, 8cm recordable Blu-ray disc with 16.5GB storage capacity at CEATEC 2006. Practical applications include hybrid camcorders, next-generation portable media players, and music/video media. No word yet on availability.

Although nothing definitive has been said, the groundwork has apparently been laid for a dual-layer variety (that’s 33GB for those still counting) to hit shelves in the even-more-distant future
