LaCie has today unveiled two new drives at CES 2014, the first is a new 1TB portable hard drive designed to work with iOS devices. Dubbed the LaCie Fuel Drive, it will act as a hotspot, allowing iPhones, iPods and iPads to access files within it on the go.
The drive will also work as an external drive on a computer, but its main feature is that it is completely wireless, allowing users to wirelessly upload and download files from the on-board battery which is said to last up to 10 hours.
The drive will be accessible through the Seagate media app whilst on an iOS device and will allow for mirroring playback to an Apple TV, as well as allowing for synchronisation with Dropbox.
The second drive is the new LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 drive, which has been upgraded to allow for transfer speeds of up to 1375MB/s. Aimed at professionals the drive will also allow for streaming and editing of 4K and 3D video whilst on the go, and is powered by a pair of 500GB PCIe Gen 2 SSDs in RAID 0.
LaCie also says that the drive will allow for 250GB of 4K footage to be moved to the drive in just under 10 minutes.
The LaCie Fuel Drive hasn’t got a release date yet, but LaCie say when it does launch it will be available for $199, the LaCie Little Big Disk does have a release date of Q1 2014, but no price yet.
