The Egg, from Eggcyte, launches on Kickstarter now through November 7
Chandler, AZ (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
Eggcyte, a startup based in Chandler, AZ, launched a crowdfunding campaign today through November 7 on Kickstarter to help fund the manufacturing of its product, ’The Egg'. With 64/128/256GB of storage and Wi-Fi connectivity, The Egg is a handheld personal web server and storage device that permits consumers to share their photos, videos and other personal content online without using cloud services such as Facebook, Google or Instagram. Unlike cloud services, when consumers share personal content from The Egg, they remain in complete control of where it resides and who views it.
“With the ongoing revelations of iCloud hacking, stealing of personal photos and online data breaches, consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about their personal content that is stored and shared in the cloud. The Egg solves this problem for consumers because all of their personal content and their personal website are contained completely within The Egg,” said Barry Solomon, co-founder of Eggcyte.
The Egg comes in a sleek handheld form factor and is self-configuring. All the user has to do is connect The Egg to their home Wi-Fi network or public hotspot. Once connected, their Egg can be accessed from a web browser on any device by navigating to their Egg’s unique domain name.
“During trials we found The Egg to be tremendously versatile. Users took their Eggs on vacation, imported their photos and videos from their cameras and shared them with family back home. Other users streamed movies and cartoons from The Egg to their kids’ devices during long car trips, using The Egg’s Wi-Fi hotspot capability”, said Thomas Martis, co-founder of Eggcyte.
The Egg is powered by an Intel Atom processor, Linux operating system, SQL Lite database and an NGINX web server. It has a QVGA touch screen, mini USB2.0 port with all-day battery life.
