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.

I would love to use this device for long trips! I would store all my media that I want in the Gauntlet. Then I can access it on my tablet/phone/laptop when I'm on the go. This would be especially handy on a road trip and you want to watch movies on your tablet. You are not going to fit that much content with a 16gb Ipad. You can on the other hand store 500GB+ in the Gauntlet and share it with everyone in the car! Even the driver can connect his phone to it so he can listen to the .mp3 files stored on it and I can still watch my own movie. It can support up to 8 users! In the hotel, you can also share the files that you want and connect the unit to the internet as well. So you can access the content in the Gauntlet and still use the internet at the same time!
