Today, most modern cars come with USB ports, which are handy for charging and connecting devices to your cars internal systems. So this means that with Automatica, a small flash drive sized device the driver will be able to access cloud storage systems such as Google Drive and Dropbox, as well as any downloaded content along for the ride! It can even work with audio books too, so studying on the way to work is now on the menu!
This is what the Automatica USB device can offer the modern car owner;
Automatica creates a local cache of your contents and stores 24 hours of audio within the internal flash memory (expandable with microSD card slot). With a Wi-Fi connection, it automatically downloads the files from your cloud storage right to the USB device so you’ll always have the latest content right there with you. Got a new favorite song? No problem. Add it to your cloud storage folder. Your vehicle receives it. How about your favorite podcast? Got it!
This device is available right now in the US where is has a price tag of around $100 (£64), whether it will be available anywhere else is anyone’s guess at the moment.
