Thermaltake's new HDD docking station can make a Wi-Fi network.

Thermaltake has announced a new accessory – the BlacX Urban WiFi docking station. This product, in short, is simply a hot-swap hard drive docking station with a built-in wireless adapter.

The docking station can be filled with either a 2.5" or 3.5" SATA-based drive, and is accessible through either a USB 3.0 interface or a WiFi network created by the docking station itself. This network can be protected with up to WPA2 wireless security.

In the Google Play Store, as well as the Apple App Store, you'll be able to download apps for mobile phones and tablets to access the device, allowing you to avoid having to transfer the data to your mobile device through a PC or Mac. The app can be found by looking for "TtCloud."

    So basically you buy a hdd hub and you pay for a probbably shitty access point at the same time. That sure sounds like a good deal!

    Ok, that video is so stupid, why would you not use a projector in a conference room and rather people fuck about with some propriety system which probably doesn't work. Another great product from ThermalTacky.

    Any company that doesn't have WiFi and a file server and decides that having an exposed HDD floating around with your super secret yearly projections that nobody outside of that room should be seeing, seriously needs to reconsider their priorities.

    Basically what I'm saying is that this device will almost never be used in the way the advert proposes. What it will be used for are computer techs that want to do data recovery from a laptop and not be tied down by a USB cable.

    That's... not what it's saying.It's not a wireless router, it simply has wireless access - as in, it works more like a NAS, rather than relying on a too-short USB cable.
