New Ultra-Wide Band Storage Device: The Leyio
The world of storing and sharing digital information has vastly expanded and improved in recent years. Now a new device, dubbed the Leyio, hopes to push the rarely used ultra-wide band technology into a new direction for communication with digital data. The premise of the device is to allow, “for the first time, the digital generation…to take their online experience offline.” It’s essentially a tiny storage product that can be paired with other Leyios to share information.
The 16 GB memory can be connected to a regular USB stick, a computer with the included dongle or with other users through a flick of the wrist. The transfer rate is an impressive 10 MBs per second and data is secured through a built-in fingerprint scanner. The price is still unknown, but given the incompatibility with other wireless devices it’ll be interesting to see how popular the Leyio becomes. It is set to launch in April of 2009.
