That’s why we believe that a Canadian company named HSTi have pulled off something of a marvel with their latest product, the Moboplay compact home media player.
You may be aware that many of the newer electronic devices in your home and specifically your living room have USB ports that will allow you to share photos, videos or music that’s stored on a thumb drive.
The Wireless Media Stick (WMS) looks like a slightly thick USB thumb drive. It has built-in wireless, and it acts as the middle man between your various computers around your house and your various USB-enabled devices...
The most exclusive wireless USB Thumb drive is the new buzz in the gadget circuit. It provides finest way for media sharing amongst various media devices like TV, MP3 Players etc.
As our digital collections grow, and we move from physical support to the digital one, as years pass by and our family movies accumulate to hundreds of gigabytes in space, we pretty much need media players everywhere in the house. Some of us like to take some of our collections in vacation and most of the hotels are slowly switching to wide screen TVs featuring HDMI ports. This makes it easier and easier to keep ourselves (and our kids) entertained
The Wireless Media Stick was created by HSTi (Home Server Technologies, Inc.), a Calgary based company. Most homes today have a computer and wireless router. With these two devices and the addition of the Wireless Media Stick, you can share pictures, music, videos with your TV, stereo, DVD player, mobile device, digital picture frame, some gaming devices - almost any device with a USB playback port. This allows you to play media almost anywhere.
When it comes to media storage, most people save all their media files (photo, audio and video) in their computers. This makes it very convenient for you to enjoy your music or video directly on your computer. However, if you want to enjoy your Blu-ray video on your HDTV, how can you get the video from your computer to the TV quickly and without much hassle?
September 16, 2012 - HSTi MOBOSTICK REVIEW – Wireless USB File Sharing for Android Devices - Review Horizon
Previously we reviewed the HSTI Wireless Media Stick, today is its brother’s Mobostick (model MOB187U01) turn to be put through the tests, a dedicated device that HSTI created to simplify the task of sharing files from your Android phone/tablet wirelessly to any number of devices including gaming consoles, PCs, photo frames, sound systems, etc. We were also provided with a sample for review purposes and after several days of quite extensive tests we are ready to share our experience in this HSTI Mobostick Review.
We are living in a time when everything is connected and the content needs to be shared across devices. However, many of our gadgets are still not network enabled, or do not have a WiFi adapter included. I am talking about the last generations TV units, photo frames, receivers, DVD players, boom boxes, stereos, etc.
November 26, 2011 - Wireless Media Stick hands-on: stream your content to anything with a USB port - Engadget
This USB stick has built-in WiFi, so you connect it to your network and can plug it into pretty much anything with a USB port that can read a mass storage device. We saw it demoed in a Blu-ray player as well as an iPod dock (both USB-equipped of course), and in the short time we spent with it the thing seemed to work as advertised. Under the hood it's essentially a Samba client, so all you have to do is share a folder on your Mac or PC and it'll show up in your Xbox, PS3, or whatever other box you've got it plugged into.
