A wireless hard drive has been release for Apple devices that can provide up to 1 Terabyte of additional storage.
The LaCie Fuel lets users access enormous media libraries right from their iPad and iPhone.
The product creates its own Wi-Fi network, much like a router, so other devices can connect directly to it without the need for Internet access. In addition, the LaCie Fuel acts as a hotspot when connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi. This feature lets the LaCie Fuel share Internet access with other connected devices.
With AirPlay compatibility, the LaCie Fuel also lets users mirror content playing on a mobile device to a TV.
The LaCie Fuel appears as an external drive on a computer, so users can wirelessly upload or download files without draining battery power from their laptop. And with Dropbox integration, they can sync files between a computer and the LaCie Fuel automatically. This means that every time they add music, movies, or photos to the Dropbox folder on their Mac, the change is reflected on the LaCie Fuel - or vice versa.
LaCie Fuel marks the first product collaboration between Seagate and LaCie.
The 1TB LaCie Fuel will be available for $200.
One Terrabyte is equivalent to 1,000 Gigabytes.
