MBLOK Wireless Kickstarter

    Canada-based Russian-Ukrainian team Kwelea launched on Kickstarter a fundraising campaign for a miniature universal wireless data storage called MBLOK.

    A small aluminum cube connects via Bluetooth to mobile devices, representing full access to the files stored on it. By launching a special application, you can use the data - for example, view videos and photos, listen to audio files - at speeds up to 24 Mbps.

    At the initial stage, compatibility with Android and iOS is announced, in the future it is planned to integrate with BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Kindle, Pebble smart watches and other devices. FTP support will allow access to files from other devices.

    The volume of the drive is 128 or 256 Gb. There is a built-in USB-connector for charging and using the drive as a regular USB flash drive.
    Unlike existing wireless disks (such as Kingston Wi-Drive or Seagate Satellite ) equipped with Wi-Fi modules, the MBLOK team focused on long battery life - Bluetooth 4.0 is used to save power, and Bluetooth 3.0 + HS is used for fast data transfer . The 550 mAh battery should last for 300 hours of standby time.

    MBLOK provides 128-bit data encryption; integration with Google Drive, DropBox, OneDrive cloud storage is planned.

    At the moment, the project has collectedmore than $ 84,000 (Canadian dollars) of the planned $ 120,000, until the campaign ends another 24 days. The project website is mblok.ca .
