Designers Chih-Wei Wang and Shou-Hsi Fu think that in the future, music albums could be packaged not just in a compact medium, but one that integrates a music player as well. Their concept device Skinny Player is a lot simpler and thinner than the iPod Shuffle, incorporating storage, a battery, a play/stop button and speakers into a Band-Aid-like form factor.
Like its inspiration, the Skinny Player adheres to the user’s body.
Perfect for downloading copies of the Master Control Program from your PC, these TRON-inspired lightcycles are the latest in the barrage of TRON licensed goodies to hit in anticipation of TRON:Legacy’s impending release.
I have talked about the cool Flash Rods flash drives before. These things are handmade and put flash storage into Hot Wheels cars, making for one really cool flash drive. Flash rods also makes larger external HDDs for the desk as well – and the latest from the company is awesome.
Need to crank out hundreds of flash drives for a business presentation or a trade show? Want to create your own digital business cards? Looking for a great way to distribute your next music demo? The guys at Nexcopy have a nifty solution with their industrial-strength USB duplicator systems.
Just plug a single USB flash drive into the master port, and you can copy as many as 31 drives at a speed up to 2GBs per minute – which is actually faster than USB 3.0
I have a bunch of old HDDs in my desk that have data on them I don’t want to trash and don’t want on my current computer. If I want to get the data from those drives, as it is I need an external enclosure or to open my computer up and install the drive.
I like to play Rock Band, but I hate having to schlep all the stuff from the various closets and cubbies where I hide the it around the house. The drum kit is upstairs, the sticks are in the junk drawer, and one guitar is under the bed with another in the closet.
A while back, I told you guys about some CD-R disks that look like old 3.5″ floppies. In the story, I said that I’d much rather have a 3.5″ floppy USB drive, and Technabob reader Charles Mangin of Option8 has now indulged us with one.
In order to pull off this hack, Charles had to stack components of two old 3.5″
If Arnie ever gets his muscle tone back, he should do a flick combining James Belushi with Terminator and call it Raw Steel. I think I might watch that. Raw Steel might sound like an action movie, but it’s actually a rugged SD card for your camera.
Apparently, some Russian dude decided that enough was never enough, and built himself a data rig that has a whopping 70TB of storage. Yes, that 70TB. Is that finally enough for all your torrents, warez and pr0n?
Like most portable devices, the iPad’s storage capacity is quite limited. You can use the Camera Connection Kit cable to augment it’s storage, but the fact that Apple’s magical device has a confounding 32GB limit for connected drives compounds this problem.
There are already lots of online backup solutions out there, but newcomer MiMedia is the first I’ve heard that has enough common sense to give customers the option to use a hard drive for the first backup.
LaCie today rolled out an unusual new USB flash drive, which is so tiny you can leave it plugged into your computer all the time and never notice it sticking out of the side.
The MosKeyto flash drive is just 20mm long, and 14mm of that is the USB connector – leaving just a 6mm stub sticking out of your computer.
If I am to be honest, my least favorite film of the first three originals is The Empire Strikes Back. The bit where Luke gets crammed inside the dead tauntaun was kind of cool. I did like that flick better than say any of the new trilogy, especially the one with Jar Jar Binks.
My son has no interest in anything resembling technology at this point in his life unless it has to do with video games or watching Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons on Hulu. He does like Hot Wheels cars though and has collected them since he was really young.
