Minds@Work - Digital Wallet
Digital Reservoir
by Stephen Jones (November 13, 2000)


Do you always feel one CompactFlash card short of digital camera bliss or MP3 player nirvana?

If you always wished you could carry "just one more" 16MB card, the folks at Minds@Work are here to offer you a 12 ounce, 6 gigabyte solution: the Digital Wallet.

This book-sized, battery-powered unit houses its own Motorola microprocessor and a 2.5" Toshiba hard drive which can serve as a portable, digital reservoir for something like 100 hours of digital music or 6,000 high-resolution photographs.

When your multi-megapixel camera is about to max out your 64MB CompactFlash card, imagine being able to drain all those pretty pixels into the Digital Wallet via USB cable. In a blink, you can be back shooting with a fresh "roll" of digital film.

Likewise, when used to feed your MP3 player, the Digital Wallet can extend your playlist beyond the span of a cross-campus jog to handle even a cross-country drive, without repeats.

Until solid-state media sizes get vastly larger or prices drop tremendously, Mind@Work's Digital Wallet provides a roomy, economical alternative to buying more memory cards or lugging a laptop.
