Wi-Fi Hotspot and USB Storage in a set of Cuff Links

Pretty cool story I got from PSFK – a tech inovation and inspiration site that I follow. Neat idea, kinda a spy thing going for it – especially with the Wi-Fi hot spot, but the price tag seems a bit high for my tastes. They’ve got to look at their target market in this situation. The cuff links are great, but anyone who will pay $250 for a pair of links is probably going to already have a Wi-Fi hotspot when they travel for business, and 2 gigs of storage is just something that these days is becoming more and more unnesecary, with such a focus and expansion on cloud storage. From a concept perspective, I love it, but it is almost a novelty rather than a business tool. Do I want a pair? Of course I do! Am I going to drop that much to buy them? Highly doubtful. Way to think outside the box though.

 

Cufflinks Offer USB Storage & A Wi-Fi Hotspot

 

This cool new use of a fashion accessory from Brookstone aims to improve the lives of those in the business community by offering them the convenience of a Wi-Fi hotspot and 2GB of USB storage housed in a pair of cufflinks.

The polished silver oval cufflinks can be used to share data and internet access between multiple wireless devices. After downloading the accompanying software, the cufflinks can be used as a high-speed Wi-Fi hotspot by nearby smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers. They can also hold up to 2GB for files and pictures.

This luxury item is described as “perfect for business meetings, travel and techies everywhere.” One pair will set you back $249.99.

  1. I agree, if someone is rich enough to afford these links they can probably afford wifi or a great data plan.
    Still, do you think that the technology trend is heading towards integrating fashion and gadgets? (I would say yes, read my post on the wearable, sharable, programmable t-shirt)
