A Wearable Hard Drive That Lasts All Day
Saturday Jan 10, 2015 (00:04:12)
Solid state storage has created an interesting new collection of products. In addition to speeding up computers, and requiring less power, we have seen manufacturers come up with unique usages.
The Link Band is one of those truly unique products that couldn't have been possible before solid state. The device is a bracelet that doubles as a wireless hard drive. You can access the drive via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or even NFC. It will even switch to the best communication style based on speed. It can even connect to 20 devices and stream to 7 at a time.
Obviously the product requires power, but that is a well-considered issue. The drive is capable of streaming HD video for 12 hours straight, making it more than capable of surviving a full day of use. The drive is available in 128GB ($199), 256GB ($279), 512GB ($449) and even 1TB ($799) models during pre-order.
From laptops and Lumia to Surface and Xbox, get it at the Microsoft Store.
