A wireless library for your iPad.
Along with the Sphere and the Culbuto, Lacie today announced the Fuel, a wireless drive for your iPad. The idea behind the Fuel is to wirelessly expand the storage of your iPad without the muss or fuss of cables. With a capacity of 1 TB, users can store hundreds of movies and access the content from their iPad via a dedicated app. Not only that, but the drive can be accessed by up to five devices at a time, and users can stream to their TV via Apple TV.
The Fuel works by creating a WiFi network for other devices to connect to and is a collaboration between Seagate and Lacie. It can also act as a wireless hotspot for other devices when connected to the web.
Lacie says the built-in battery will last for about 10 hours, so you can take it on a road trip and have each passenger watching their own shows on their smartphones or tablets.
Pricing is set at $199; availability is nothing more specific than 'soon.'
