Other than video or large format cameras who would need it?  I don't know of practical applications for it.

How many 50MP shots you think you can fit on that?

Looks like that would hold a few photos.  About 10,000 Nikon D850 photos would be stored on that!

Right, will simplify video productions but, when it comes
to medium format, the shooting sessions do not go the
way smaller format go, so I will stay on the 256 MB with
the IQ80 location sessions.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

I read this yesterday.  This reminds me back in the day leaps in hard drive space.  Won't be long before we see 5TB SD cards.

Impressive, but I have no need for something like that.  I have their 256gb card and barely fill that up.

Who in their right mind is going to walk around with 1TB of images on a single memory card?  Hollywood movie productions.  

As I see it, SanDisk announced 1TB some years ago, didn't do anything with it.  Lexar is in trouble, so they need a big news in their favor, so they release something like this more for PR vs practicality.  Just my 2 cents.  I'm guessing SanDisk pulled the plug on the 1TB project because the lack of solid market for this size of a card.

Have you recorded any 4k video? My 128 GB card holds just under 3 hours of video. Which isn't enough for two stage productions in a single day (matinee and evening). I'm going to need a 256 GB card, but a 1TB card would allow me to shoot several shows over a weekend without running out of space.

A Nikon D850 can write 1000 images to a 64GB card using lossless compression. Half that with no compression. That's not enough space for any reasonable event of any length. And an all day event (oh, a wedding perhaps?) can result in a lot of images.

My point? That 1TB is no longer as spacious as it once was. I can see having a pair of them in a dual-slot camera for stills, and using one for video shoots where you are capturing many shots (think B roll, at the very least). Any effort a few years back would have fallen into the "a solution in search of problem" category. No longer, I suggest.

Therefore, right mind or not (and many would agree with "not") I'd do it if circumstances warranted it.
