You may remember the Kickstarter project CloudFTP we told you about a few days ago. That’s the plan to build a combination wireless router and battery that can be connected to any USB hard drive to give mobile wireless access to the drive’s data to any device, including iPhones and iPads. The planned selling price is $69. We love the idea so much, Geek Beat is sponsoring it at the $1,000 level. A couple of new reports have come through from Sanho, the company that plans to make the device.
First, it’s passed the 50% funding mark after only 12 days and with 58 more to go before the funding deadline, things look good for this project going forward at the planned price.
Secondly, Sanho has announced an SDK for developers interested in expanding the capabilities of the device. If you’re a developer and would like to play around with this new platform, here’s a look at what’s in the existing Linux kernel and what will be in the SDK:
Network Device Support
C Language Software Development Package
Private HTTP Protocol Extension
Sample in SDK
There’s definitely enough there to get some mental gears turning. What would you like to see built into this device?
