It's 2008, so where the hell is my flying car? Aren't we supposed to have those by now? Until that day comes, I guess I will have to be satisfied with having my own robot. Data Robotics are the makers of the world's first storage robot. Drobo is an infinitely expandable storage enclosure that holds up to four 3.5" sata drives. It provides automated redundant data protection with an easy to use plug and play interface. Plug in a new drive and Drobo automatically backs up the data across the other adjacent drives. If one drives fails, no problem, the data is safe as it has already been backed up on the other drives.

To quote HAL from Stanley Kubrick 's 2001 A Space Odyssey -"The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error."

Creepy indeed.

Pros: Infinitely Expandable, Non-Stop Data Protection, Easy Interface.

Not as Cool as R2D2 or as Paranoid as HAL.

List Price: $499.00
