If your smartphone is running low on internal storage a new smartphone case called the ExoDrive case, created by Bhadrajee Dahanayake. May be able to help you expand your storage without the need to upgrade your smartphone.
The ExoDrive case has been designed to allow users to use microSD cards to increase their smartphones storage capacity with ease. Watch the video below to learn more about the innovative and very unique smartphone case that is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones.
The ExoDrive has been in development for two years and will be available in a range of colours including black, grey and white as well as an exclusive aluminium design. The case is currently in a 3D printed prototype stage and is being developed to support a wide variety of different smartphones. Its creator explains :
“When an Exo-Drive case is plugged into a computer, the computer has access to both the device’s usual internal memory, as well as the micro-SD card installed in the Exo-Drive case.
We developed an extremely efficient SD to USB adapter, which works through USB On The Go to give ExoDrive cases their SD compatibility. Alongside this we created a switching-hub system that allows computers connected to the case to be able to access both the installed micro-SD card and the phone’s storage. This is only powered on when connected to a computer, to further increase power efficiency.
The protective case aspect of ExoDrive cases hasn’t been forgotten either. The cases will be made with a hard outer shell and a soft rubber lining around the phone, USB connection and PCB, absorbing shocks while protecting your phone. This also prevents the micro-USB connectors being destroyed if the phone gets dropped.”
