Bubble Memory

I did find a description of bubble memory:

A type of non-volatile memory composed of a thin layer of material that can
be easily magnetized in only one direction. When a magnetic field is
applied to circular area of this substance that is not magnetized in the
same direction, the area is reduced to a smaller circle, or bubble.

 It was once widely believed that bubble memory would become one of the
leading memory technologies, but these promises have not been fulfilled.
Other non-volatile memory types, such as EEPROM, are both faster and less
expensive than bubble memory.
