Hardly a day goes by without a new tech company looking for crowdfunding from Kickstarter or Indiegogo. But here’s one that caught our eye. Billed as the world’s first wearable private cloud it’s essentially a watch that can store all your files from various devices without having to be connected to the internet.
Potentially perfect for those who are worried about their devices being stolen or their data being lost – as well as government officials who leave their laptops and iPads on the train – ReVault claims to be a new type of storage that gives you the smartness and convenience of the public cloud, and the security of local storage. With ReVault you can store files locally and access them at the speed of a local network.
ReVault connects to your devices using WiFi and Bluetooth and you can set it up to auto-backup and auto-synchronize your files across your devices. Wearable so that you can easily carry your files wherever you go at all times, it comes in sizes of 32GB and 128GB.
The ReVault has been designed to be private, secure and protected, functioning offline out of the reach of crackers, governments and big corporations. Only trusted devices can connect to ReVault with the data stored on the device encrypted using AES-256. On top of that you can also choose to password protect your app using single, or 2-factor authentication.
ReVault provides a number of screen faces, that you can choose between. You can either select a face for your private cloud data, or a digital or analogue clock. There are also hybrid faces displaying both. Developers will also be able to create their own custom faces using the ReVault API.
At the time of writing, ReVault has attracted around $51,000 of its $65,000 funding goal with US backers able to get an ‘early bird deal’ of $169 on the 32GB model and $269 on the 128GB model.
