HyperCube saves iPhone, Android photos and videos to microSD

HYPER, the makers of the world’s most crowdfunded USB-C hubs, are currently running a highly successful Kickstarter campaign for the HyperCube.

The HyperCube is a small device that sports a micro SD card slot, with a male USB connector and two female USB ports. Since it is so small, it seems like it would be pretty easy to carry around. That’s also essential with smartphone support gear.

How does it work?

The HyperCube connects to your iPhone or Android phone using a USB cable. After that, you can use the company’s free app to automatically backup all your videos and photos onto a micro SD card or USB drive. All the while, your phone will be charging. Plus, you can disconnect anytime and the back-up will resume when you reconnect.

You can see a video from Hyper TV that shows the entire process for hooking up the HyperCube and storing your files:

While the device works with any iPhone and Android smartphone, it also can work as a USB flash drive on the computer. So you can unload all your files onto your PC and edit them to your liking.

Less need for Cloud subscriptions

While you have to pay a monthly fee for many cloud services, HYPER says the HyperCube can replace cloud storage, and it costs just $29 bucks.

If you are interested in the HyperCube, you can check it out on Kickstarter right now. HYPER has already reached its pledge goal of $100,000, but it still has 25 days to go.
