At its core, EzeeCube is a private cloud storage solution, similar to products like the Transporter. Its main purpose is to serve as a central media hub, automatically syncing and organizing music, movies, and pictures across all your devices, providing a single portal for convenient and secure access. And that’s pretty awesome.
Except it’s also expandable, allowing users to stack up to four other modules seamlessly, letting you increase the storage using the company’s 2TB EzeeCube cartridges without wiring it up to external drives. And the expansion isn’t limited to extra storage either, with modules for a retro game cartridge reader (works with SNES and Sega Genesis), a TV tuner, and a Blu-ray player on the pipe.
The main EzeeCube module measures 5.5 x 5.5 x 1.8 inches (w x d x h), taking up about as much footprint as standard set-top boxes. Specs include a Cortex A9 Dual Core processor, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, 1TB of onboard storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, gigabit LAN, and an infrared receiver. There’s a smattering of ports and connectors right on the device, too, including USB, microUSB, HDMI, optical audio, and an SDXC card reader. It comes with the XBMC software onboard, so you just plug it into the TV to use as an HTPC, with the accompanying mobile app serving as the remote (it also supports CEC, so you can use any universal remote if you’d rather keep the phone away). The same app can give you access to all the content remotely, letting you use your app of choice to play the music collection at home while hooked up to the WiFi network at Starbucks. It supports Android, iOS, Windows, and OS X.
An Indiegogo campaign is currently running for EzeeCube. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $199.
