Announced today as the the world’s first Wireless USB external hard drive, the Imation Pro WX drive offers 1.5TB of capacity and fast data transfer rates of up to 15MBs/second. The product also comes with an innovative one-to-one connection that limits the possibility of signal interception and securely backs up data whenever it is in range up to 30 feet, similar to a direct attached storage device. It’s said already available for about $450 in the U.S.
