AirStash Wi-Fi flash drive ships, promises iPad streaming

Wearable AirStash uses HTML5 for remote access

Wearable after a notable delay began shipping the AirStash wireless flash drive. As unveiled earlier, the device has no built-in storage of its own but instead acts as a Wi-Fi remote server. It can share or stream content either from an attached computer through USB or from an inserted SD/SDHC card; it has its own battery and can last for up to five hours of continuous video without being attached to any device.

The relative newcomer to the field has also explained that the AirStash uses HTML5 to provide a web interface to its contents. Using the standard not only makes it simple to stream content directly through modern browsers like Chrome and Safari but makes it trivial for Apple's mobile devices to share compatible media formats without needing an app. One of the drives could be ideal for iPad owners wanting to access their complete media library away from home, Wearable claims.

Networking can be locked down using WPA2 on the AirStash, which costs $100 for an empty drive.
