The Kickstarter campaign for Hyper’s iStick, which surpassed an original goal of $100,000 in just three hours, is currently racing toward $1,000,000 with only eight days left.

With so much interest in the iStick, a USB flash drive with a Lightning connector, we had to take it for a test drive. Watch our video to see what you think. You can keep an eye on Hyper’s Kickstarter, which ends June 17, here.

HYPER by Sanho – the company behind the Hyperjuice batteries for Macbooks and iPads have just launched their latest creation to the world through Kickstarter.

The iStick is essentially a USB stick with the dual use of connecting it to your iPhone 5, 5s, iPod Touch and iPads with it’s Apple certified lightning connector, which is great if you have a internet connection that is too slow in the office for cloud based storage, or if you’re on the road and want to watch a couple of movies without eating into your data plan.

Like bicycle streamers or rum, adding a wifi hotspot to pretty much anything will make it exponentially better. The tiny new Hyper iUSBPort Mini is a great example of this: It’s a $90 USB drive with a built-in WiFi hotspot that can be used to share files or stream movies or songs to an iOS or Android device.

One tip for the device’s marketing team though: Please come up with a better name.

What Do These Naked Women Have To Do With Battery Packs? [CES 2013]

Welcome to the most awkward booth at CES. There are battery packs for your iPhone and MacBooks. You can check out a new stylus. On display in the corner is an external iOS drive. They even got some new iPad cases on too. But don’t let those products distract you from the real show: the four naked women standing on display.

Scantly clad booth babes are a common sight at CES, but HyperShop has taken it to a whole new level by unabashedly displaying naked women at their booth. They claim it’s art, and maybe it is (what is “art” anyway?), but what the hell do these naked women have to do with battery packs?
