San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
The Eggcyte team, an innovative ‘personal web’ technology company, has announced today that The Egg has generated tremendous excitement in the automotive, education and healthcare industry, where the uses for a secure, storage and server device that can be taken with you or left in the office, extend beyond the consumer market and into the professional market.
The Egg is the first personal web device that seamlessly extends phone and other device storage so users will never run out of space when it’s most needed. The Egg also acts as a self-configuring personal web server that enables users to share videos, photos, music, or files without resorting to intrusive cloud-based services. This includes the ability to take your Egg with you in the car and stream directly to any device, keeping passengers entertained.
"While there have been many breakthrough technologies from Jaguar Land Rover over the decades, our extensive investment in research and development means there are plenty more to come," stated Matt Jones, Senior Technical Specialist - Infotainment at Jaguar Land Rover. "The Egg is an innovative concept and exciting technology that gives vehicle users so many possibilities going forward. We're looking at backing this straight away with the intent to explore these possibilities"
Recent changes in the health care industry have led us to a new understanding of the secure storage needs and trends. The Egg, with its secure and adaptable storage and server system, provides an unprecedented level of flexibility for efficient storage and private, secure sharing of patient information, allowing doctors to share the most personal information with patients, nurses, and other physicians.
“With its secure data sharing and ease-of-use The Egg offers tremendous potential for use in healthcare,” said Dr. David Seftel, “Physicians are continually challenged by privacy considerations when sharing information with other physicians and patients. The Egg provides an exciting remedy for this.”
The Egg has also proven to be an effective device for teachers looking to store photographs and videos of students working through the day. The secure nature of The Egg allows teachers to pick and choose what to share and with whom.
“Many parents, rightfully so, do not want their child’s likeness shared on media outlets like Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. With the Egg, sharing content of kids with only their families on my self-contained secure Egg website is a breeze,” said Michael Buist, 5th grade teacher at Knox Gifted Academy. “The Egg also makes storage issues a thing of the past. If you’re running low on space on your device, simply plug in your phone to the Egg and all of the content will be transferred automatically.”
The Egg is the first personal web device that seamlessly extends phone and other device storage so users will never run out of space when it’s most needed. The Egg also acts as a self-configuring personal web server that enables users to share videos, photos, music, or files without resorting to intrusive cloud-based services. The Egg is a place where consumers can store their personal content, control what they share, and control who they share it with.
“Validation in these new markets is a true testament to the value that this revolutionary product offers,” stated Thomas Martis, co-founder of Eggcyte. “We are excited for the opportunity to bring The Egg to more users and markets around the world.”
