Sanho's bantam CloudFTP puts USB storage devices online, streams on battery power and sheer will

Pogoplug, as they say, just got served. Sanho -- the same geniuses responsible for the HyperMac -- is introducing yet another intelligent box here at CES 2012. The diminutive CloudFTP is a battery-powered file server that takes popular USB devices (thumb drives, hard drives, etc.) and then streams 'em to up to three different devices or serves vanilla files to any WiFi device within range. Better still, it's capable of syncing data with iCloud, Dropbox, Box and a slew of other online cloud storage devices, and it'll churn out files for a solid five hours before needing a recharge. There's an ARM9 microprocessor inside to handle the ins and outs, and considering that it measures just 2.95- x 2.28- x 0.87-inches while weighing 3.8 ounces, it ought not weigh you down too badly when traveling. It'll ship next month here in the States for $99.95, which is $30 higher and a month later than we heard back in November of 2011.
