Some caveats: In my tests with iOS devices, there's a slightly tricky process that you have to remember when accessing content. The drives create their own Wi-Fi network, so you have to remember to connect to the drive's network in order to access content before you start transferring data or streaming media content. Both devices do support a form of Internet access passthrough, where you can tell the SanDisk unit to also connect to a local Wi-Fi network, but we got mixed results when trying that on our own devices (sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't). In addition, streaming functionality was slower (longer wait time before movies started playing) than with comparable apps I've tried (specifically Seagate's Media app and Central storage device). Sometimes I couldn't get the Wireless Flash Drive to stream content, forcing me to shut down the app and reboot, or reconnect to the drive's Wi-Fi network. Hopefully, app updates from SanDisk can improve the app's Internet access and speed issues.
Grade: Wireless Flash Drive, 4 stars (out of five); Wireless Media Drive, 4.5 stars.
The Scoop: MeCam body-worn camera, about $50 (4GB) to $70 (16GB).
What is it? This small, circular device includes a camera lens that can take photos and record video. It's meant to be clipped onto your clothing or a hat via a safety-pin-style connector, or you can connect a flexible cord to the unit and wear it like a necklace. The video records high-definition video (1,280 by 720) in AVI formats, or you can push a button to take 5-megapixel JPG photos. The unit's battery can be recharged via a mini-USB cable, which is also included (a power adapter cable is not, however). Footage is recorded onto a microSD card (you can buy units with 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of capacity). The device also uses LED infrared technology, so you can capture night-time footage (capture some moments from the concert you're attending?) as well.
Why it's cool: The goal of the MeCam is not to be stealthy with video, or to provide GoPro action-camera style video that you can get from other devices. Rather, it's a device that lets you to "capture every moment" or to "never miss a moment", for those impromptu events that might take place if you're not holding a larger camera. This also assumes that anybody that you're with forgets that you're wearing the unit.
