File-Sharing with a Flick of the Wrist

Worried about the local copyright traffic cops slowing your internet connection down? Concerned that your latest BitTorrent upload will get you busted? The latest device from Leyio has introduced their Personal Sharing Device (PSD) that lets you trade files with literally a flick of the wrist.

Leyio's irritating website gives scant details on the product, but there's enough information around to get a better understanding of the device. It uses Ultra Wide Band (UWB) wireless technology to transfer files between PSD users, and for us mere mortals with only lowly USB sticks, it has support for those as well. There doesn't appear to be any DRM restrictions, and Leyio's website appears to indicate the just about any file can be shared.

So let's say this product takes off and many people own a PSD. If you wish to share files with someone, just flick the device right at the person you wish to share with, and that's it. Security concerns are addressed with fingerprint technology. File-sharing doesn't get much easier than that.

Pricing hasn't been released yet. It's scheduled to be available in April of 2009, and Leyio's blog is scheduled to be launched in February.
