Gauntlet Node supports streaming to five devices simultaneously

Patriot Memory has announced the launch of a new portable storage enclosure called the Gauntlet Node. The enclosure is a portable wireless device that has an internal lithium-polymer battery. The enclosure supports any 2.5-inch, 9.5 mm thick hard drive or SSD.
 
Once the SSD hard drive is installed into the portable wireless enclosure, the Gauntlet Node allows the drive to be accessed wirelessly from tablets, smartphones, and laptops. Patriot says that the Gauntlet Node can connect to up eight devices and can wirelessly share and stream movies, music, and documents to five different devices at the same time.
 
An app is available for Android and iOS devices allowing the devices to access content stored on the drive.
 
The enclosure measures 3.39-inches by 5.47-inches by .96-inches and weighs 182.5 g. It supports 802.11 b/g/n and uses SATA II internal connectivity for the drive. It supports hard drives with a maximum capacity of 2 TB, and the internal battery promises 5.5 hours of continuous streaming per charge.
 
The enclosure is available online right now for $100.

Imagine a corporate meeting where everyone has a tablet. You could walk in there with the Node and have everyone get access to your presentation or charts right there on the spot. Better yet, I'd have my kids stream off of it during roadtrips or camping.The idea to have one centralized data or cloud is better than having to transfer files to each of the phones/tablets...
