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:

120GB: $299
160GB: $349
250GB: $399
320GB: $449
500GB: $499
640GB: $549
750GB: $599

If you're one of the brave souls who's trying to replace their laptop with an iPad, then the ability to directly dump photo and video files—a lot of them—will be a welcome one. But depending on just how many files you need to dump, it could end up costing you as much as your iPad itself. [HyperShop]
