wireless storage that aims to unify all the files across multiple devices is not new and as consumers, we are spoilt for choice, however, if one) you rather have it in your pocket than your bag; two) loathe the idea of dealing with cables and; three) need to look good using it, then you should seriously check out MBLOK. MBLOK is a tiny companion to all your devices which its creator lovingly described as “memory for all devices” – a minimal and straightforward tagline that is also reflected in the product design ethos. crafted from aluminum, MBLOK has purposeful round edges to enable it to glide smoothly in and out of your pocket, while a USB plug blends seamlessly into the block when not in use completes the design language.
beyond aesthetic, it offers up to 256GB of storage, pairs to your multiple gadgets via Bluetooth 4.0 LE, which not only nibbles on the power but also provides speedy transfer speeds of up to 2.5 MB/s, and when you top that off with a built-in battery with up to 300 hours of usage, you have one neat, tiny package that kind of solves all your messy digital life. additional features include private, secure and protected storage through the use of 128-bit encryption and it also doubles as a handy USB flash drive for transporting and backing up the files on your computer. doing all those things we have mentioned without the need of any cable, and this cable-less freedom extends to charging too; all you have to do is plug your MBLOK into any USB charger to top up the juice. watch out for the MBLOK on Kickstarter soon.
UPDATE [May 17, 2014; 2:18AM PST] MBLOK has hit Kickstarter and you can get one for $189 CAD and up (about US$174 and up). not surprisingly, it is looking absolutely rad. as far as aesthetic and functionality goes, MBLOK is a winner. just imagine, up to 256GB of memory that slips right into your pocket with space to spare which means you can forget about those offerings major hard drive makers are touting.
a big thanks to Anton for the heads up.
