Carry around your cloud storage


If you like the convenience of cloud storage, but are wary of privacy implications, and/or are not satisfied by the file download/upload transfer rate, a new device called The Egg might be what you are looking for. It’s a tiny Wi-Fi enabled cloud storage server, powered by an Intel Atom processor and running Tizen, with up to 256 GB storage that you can carry in your pocket, with your data being fully private and always accessible, and there’s also a touchscreen display to let you watch

The project has now been launched on Kickstarter, with the company looking to raise over $500,000. Perks start at $199 for the 64GB Egg including your own domain name, and up to $399 for the 256GB version. Shipping is free to the US, but an hard-to-swallow $65 fee is asked to ship the package to the rest of the world, and delivery is scheduled for July 2015. Beside the Kickstarter campaign, more details may be available on
