From the good folks who make the power-in-a-pinch HyperMac batteries, the HyperDrive is a hard drive that connects directly to your iPad. It has a touch screen, can read 12 types of memory cards, and has capacities reaching 750GB.
The HyperDrive overcomes the Camera Connection Kit's 32GB limit by arranging folders into separate, iPad-readable 32GB drives, allowing users to store up to 750GB of photos and video on the go and transfer them to the iPad as needed. A 3.2" color touchscreen lets users pick the desired files, and it also displays JPEG and RAW images. When not connected to an iPad, it functions as a standard USB external hard drive.
The HyperDrive also serves as a memory card backup device, reading 12 popular formats, including Compact Flash, SD, SDHC, and the rest, with two card readers. There's a whole range of sizes, too, depending on your needs:
