StormFly is raising money on Kickstarter for an innovative new product that is best described as a PC you can wear on your wrist. An alternative to cloud computing, the creators of StormFly are calling their technology “Now Computing” and with four days to go in the campaign, StormFly has raised just over $74,000 and needs your help to make their $100,000 goal.
Cloud computing’s hyper-mobility is powerful, but it’s not always feasible. If you’re always struggling to find better data speed and increased security, then you should look into Stormfly wristbands – the USB 3.0 powered harddrive that puts your PC on your wrist. Just plug in the USB wristband and reboot the device and you’ll have your own operating system on hand with all of your personal data.
We built StormFly for speed. Running an Operating System from a USB is not easy, there’s a lot of information spinning back and forth to make things happen at lightning speed. Because of that we designed USB 3.0, the latest USB standard, and we tweaked it a bit to give it some properties of SSD (Solid State Drives). The result gives you a device that not only allows you to run your Operating System, it also gives you a standard USB storage device that is super-fast.
Stormfly is a product from Now Computing and the Kickstarter campaign aims to give you an ultraportable option that removes all of the uncertainty of cloud computing. You won’t have to wait for dependable wi-fi or slow servers. The wristband is only accessible with your personal password and if you lose your wristband, Now Computing sends you a replacement product with data from the last time you backed up. Read more
