Polaroid developing automatic photo backup drive

Polaroid Photo Drive

Seeking to streamline the preservation of photos for even the most inexperienced users, Polaroid is today known to be working on an automated portable hard drive. Called the Media Backup Photo Edition, the drive will search an attached Windows PC for image files and copy them to its 40GB hard disk without asking for input or questioning the file type -- over 60 formats are supported. The searches even apply to compressed volumes, according to CrunchGear. No software will be needed to run the drive, and uploading the photo collection to an attached PC should require only a button press. Polaroid's drive ships in early 2007 for $129.
