Limited storage on the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro can sometimes be a pain in the neck when you really need more to work with, which is why the new Nifty MiniDrive has been introduced as a new semi-permanent backup storage solution. Taking advantage of the MacBook’s SD card slots, it should be a great alternative to carrying around extra bulky pieces of hardware and having pieces sticking out of the side of your laptop.
The Nifty MiniDrive is a small plastic adapter with a microSD card, which can be inserted to any MacBook Pro’s or MacBook Air’s full-size SD port. It’s been designed to fit snuggly in there without sticking out from the side. It can support microSD cards up to 64GB and is removable from the port by slipping the end of a paperclip through a small section of the outer-facing side to pull it out.
This “nifty” little storage helper is in its Kickstarter project funding phase right now, and its developers were initially aiming for $11,000 in funding to make production possible. They seemed to have had no problem with achieving that amount since they’ve nearly crossed $35,000, so we’ll be seeing this product in the future for sure. Backers can pledge from $25 up to $1,000 for the Nifty MiniDrive project and shipping will be free in the US.
