Recipes - Speech Skill Book is a holotape in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on, Old World Blues.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from holodisk. To modify, please edit the source page.

Developed using Tape Holography Technology, holodisks are a high-density, laser-readable,[1] manufactured-crystal storage device produced by Wattz Electronics.[2] Each holodisk is capable of storing their information safely for extended periods of time, without causing read errors or data corruption. The THT reels are usually stored inside a resistant, stainless casing outfitted with a universal I/O port for connectivity.[3] These disks and tapes were the very latest in pre-War information storage technology and quickly became the most widespread data storage medium, available in a variety of compatible variants.[4]

The development of technology progressed rapidly and while early holotape models could store only as much as 256 kilobytes of data (though typically, they could only hold between 128 and 64 kilobytes),[5] the latest models from 2077 could store up to 4 terabytes (4,000 gigabytes) of data,[2] but are far less common than holotapes due to their short time frame of availability.

However, holotapes still managed to take the world by storm and formed the basis of nearly every data storage setup, including transmissions,[6] software backups,[7] and even storing an abridged version of the Library of Congress in G.E.C.K.s.[5] Of course, holodisks and tapes had many more uses before the war besides just data storage. Specific models were meant to hold entertainment, such as music and movies,[8][9] with special-purpose players developed for displaying large, high resolution volumetric images[10] or to play holotapes for personal use in a home environment or public setting.[11][12]

    These disks and tapes were the very latest in pre-War information storage technology. They hold a whopping 256K of information—apiece! While it's unlikely that anyone will ever need that much storage space for any sort of data, these durable disks and tapes are often encoded with useful information. Standardized holodisks and holotapes—holos—are still used throughout the Wastes for transferring information. Taking a holo from one person to another is an effective way of delivering a lot of information in a small package
    Some holos impart their information to you—just use the holo in your inventory, and then check your Pip-Boy to see if the holo's information was downloaded to your Pip-Boy's memory for your reading pleasure. These tapes aren't usually worth anything—but the information they carry sure can be.
    From food for thought to food for your belly, the desert is filled with surprises."

    "THT Tapes can store an incredible amount of data, some can hold as much as 256k. The standard tape holds 64k, with the middle model holding an average of 128k (barring any bad inches of tape). THT Tapes are based on Tape Holography technology, storing their information safely for extended periods of time. Use the THT Tape to add it’s information to a compatible reader, in your case - the PIPBoy 2000."

    Klein: "IT IS NOT AN ARGUMENT IF ONE IS CLEARLY RIGHT AND THE OTHER IS CLEARLY WRONG! I REMEMBER NOW. YES, LOBOTOMITE, THERE ARE OTHER CHIPS. IF YOU WANT, FIND THEM. I BELIEVE THEY ARE STORED ON HOLOTAPES IN MANY OF OUR FACILITIES. BUT YOU SHOULD STAY OUT OF THOSE - NO EXPLORING AND DISCOVERING THINGS. THE SINK CENTRAL "INTELLIGENCE" SHOULD BE ENOUGH FOR YOUR...
