Eggcyte has launched a new personal cloud storage solution called Egg this week, that brings the privacy back to your documents and is looking to raise $500,000 in pledges over on Kickstarter to help take the concept in to production.
Eggcyte has also created an Egg SDK package for developers to use and create applications that link to and use the new Egg personal storage solution. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Egg project and see it in action.
Egg is a personal web server for all your digital media that you would like to keep private and or possibly share with other easily. Egg content is not tracked or scanned by cloud services, your personal information remains unmistakably yours and not a third party company that is storing yor media.
“We created Egg, a personal Web server that lets you share your content without losing control of it to a cloud company. The Egg has 64/128/256GB of storage space and a battery that provides about 10-12 hours of active use when away from a power outlet. The Egg is also an access point that allows you and others to view your content even if there is no available wireless connection.
We partnered with Big Bang, a leading design firm based out of Atlanta, to develop the industrial design and look-and-feel of the product. Our inspiration was the egg, which is the container for things that are very precious which eventually become things that are even more wonderful in nature.
The Egg is roughly half the size of a smartphone. It uses an Intel Atom-class application processor. It has Wi-Fi for Connectivity and a 2.4” – 320 x 240 pixel color screen.
Content can be seamlessly imported into the Egg using USB or Wi-Fi and stored in 64/128/256GB of onboard Flash. You can leave the Egg plugged in and connected to your Wi-Fi at home or carry it with you and connect to any available Wi-Fi access point at a coffee shop or airport. When unplugged and during normal operation, the product is expected to have 10–12 hours of battery life.”
So if you think Egg is something your privacy and documents could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Egg become a reality and be one of the very first to own and use one.
