Hoping to change the way computer and tablet users save files, Canada-based Kwelea, Inc. launched their $120,000 crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for its product MBLOK. The “memory card” is known as a “pocket-sized SSD with integrated Bluetooth technology that allows you to store and access data from up to 7 mobile devices, all on the go.”
According to its campaign site, “By pairing the MBLOK with all of your devices through Bluetooth, you can use it just like local memory. However, instead of transferring files between devices, they are all stored in one location. Stream movies, music and access files on the go with up to 300 hours of battery life without need for Internet access. Plug in to PC and upload data similarly to a flash drive while charging the MBLOK simultaneously. In addition, it is so small that it can fit in your pocket.”
Along with its outstanding battery life, the MBLOK has storage up to 256GB; transfer speeds up to 24 Mbit/s; and the user may put thousands of different files, including documents, music, pictures and videos on tables/smartphones offline. Its storage is also private, secure and protected with 128-bit encryption.
Kwelea also wrote, “Lack of memory is common and presents a major disadvantage for using our favorite gadgets. Sometimes, you hit a wall with no opportunity to expand the storage and the ‘Memory is full’ message leaves you with nowhere to go. Seeking a solution, you may try to rely on cloud servers and leave your file storage something ‘far, far away’ to trust somebody to handle your precious data. However, lack of an Internet connection spells disaster.”
“Now, device memory limit it no longer a problem. With the help of MBLOK, all the space you really need can easily fit into your pocket. You can now extend the device capacity: Just pair you MBLOK, and additional storage will always be available for your every need. You can store, retrieve, play stream, or read your files.”
MBLOK has its own operating system and can community with all kinds of devices, including iOS devices, Android, and the user can simply plug in the device into their PC USB port to load it with files quickly and easily.
Since the campaign kicked off last week, they have raised over $70,000 from 290 backers. It is set to close on June 16th.
