infinitec USB memory

‘infinitek’ USB memory 79.4mm x 22mm x 14.2mm, 22 grams

for anyone who has experienced the frustration of a full USB flash drive while wanting to transfer files to a friend, there is ‘infinetec‘ USB memory. while it does not actually store any content of drive itself, it does provides users with an alternative means to moving digital data. when plugged into one’s laptop it uses the wifi signal for connectivity and leverages the laptop’s storage capabilities as it own.

infinitec USB memory wireless supported: IEEE 802.11 b/g/n data rate 802.11b: up to 11mbs data rate 802.11g: up to 54mbs data rate 802.11n: up to 300mbs frequency range: 2.4-2.5 ghz

FAT32 and NTFS file system capabilities maximum size capacity: unlimited interface: high speed USB 2.0

the ‘infinitec’ storage can be as large as the entire hard disk of your laptop or even larger. by sharing all the external hard drives and servers that your laptop has access to, the data is combined to create the IUM’s infinite capacity. ultimately, the more storage space that your laptop can access, the larger the memory of the IUM will appear to be. users can keep adding storage which means that running out of space is unlikely.

the IUM is a plug and play drive: when it’s connected to any USB equipped device, it will always appear as a standard off-the-shelf flash drive. this means that there is no need to install any drivers or software on any of the device one uses the USB device with.

with this new product, there is unlimited file sharing allowing users to share the entire hard drive as well as any servers, external hard drives or other storage space that your laptop connects to. IUM also allows users to share one single file or your entire hard drive, thus, giving them complete control over what others can access. if lost or stolen,  users do not have to worry about compromised security as none of the files are actually physically on the device itself. finally, IUM drive features media streaming capabilities.

  • photos=nice
    quantity of text=good
    and …..
    …sorry, but I dont get it

    amIdumb? says:
  • so, is it like dropbox/mesh/mobileme but wireless?
    does it have a free 3G service attached?
    this product doesnt seem particularly radical,
    cant they just explain in existing paradigms..?

    dumbtoo says:
  • I hate it when certain electronic modules don’t fit into the whole concept. The stick remembers me of a racecar, but I dislike its shape and colour.

    darwin says:
  • um, I think its just a USB wireless transmitter
    ..that most computers already have built-in anyway
    havent these things been around for eons?

  • One thing I like about current USB flash drives is I know where my files exist. I can go back and find them.

    Surely with this, some software is whisking my data off to god knows where and I have to hope nothing goes wrong when trying to access it again.

    Dan says:
  • The device serves a few purposes: you can use it to give all sorts of files to other machines in your home,
    or you could plug it into your HDTV or Blu-ray deck in order to stream PC-bound content right to your den.
    The goal here was to make other devices assume that this was just one giant flash drive, with gigabytes
    upon gigabytes of media right on the drive.

    So far as the receiving PC or set-top box knows, the IUM is just a stock flash drive with a capacity of your choosing.
    Just drop files over like you would from a standard USB key, and it shoots across the network to its final destination.
    Currently, it’s not suggested that you use this to send files over the internet — the lag in tunneling just makes for
    a poor user experience. The demo we witnessed (watching a Simpsons episode that was hosted on a nearby netbook)
    was remarkably smooth, with the user being able to skip ahead by minutes at a time with no visible lag.
    There’s even the hope that the internals could one day be integrated into laptops in order to remove the need
    for an external dongle, but for now, you can expect a summertime release in the US and a sub-0 price tag.

  • @astroturfer
    the internals are already integrated into laptops.its called wireless networking and its been around for ages.
    this thing has a market (old laptops, tv’s that dont currently have wireless to connect to your photos etc.) but it also has a lot of competitors

    no? says:
  • assuming your customer is an idiot often doesnt help sell products…even potentially mildly useful ones like this
    ditch the voodoo and just explain properly what it is and what it isnt…
    eg, does your company work like dropbox.com or is this thing just a data transferral device?

    hmm says:
  • for media streaming it’s great

    jayee says:
  • There is a video on their website which makes its’ use clearer. http://www.infinitec.com
