Thank you for your thoughts, this is the method and work flow i visualised from the start of owning a tablet.
I bought a WD mycloud, then found out this work flow was limited when used with the IOS.
So the Gnarbox idea i feel will take off big style, once people can understand Gnarbox uses.
I suspect many people will see items like Gnarbox as a proffessional photographer while filming for the BBC out in the North Pole.
For me the access to the other drives I have with stock video and images is 300 % advantage to my ideas and workflow. Currently these HD’s I cannot access with the IOS environment which is a huge negative and restriction to my imagination. ( It is possible to plug in the other drives i have into the WD MY CLOUD, speed is same as USB 1 when using the IOS and their for unsuitable )
So if the Gnarbox can do as it says on the tin, i am in.
Simple put Gnarbox have made what people wished for and Banna heads at Apple either do not wish people to work this way, maybe the idea was put forwards and shelved.
So i am very interested in how this idea of Gnarbox works out, for sure people will look at the price and be put off.
So it is worth noting that the Gnarbox is more than a HD, from my limited knowledge the Gnarbox is a simple computer with 2 to 4 Gigs of Ram to help with the processing and interface with tablet enviroment.
I not sure but hope the Gnarbox works with other operating systems, this would help will mass sales and in return more R and D.
The main advantages for myself are,
1: Portable, i can work from my two places of residents, i can work from on site.
2: Take video contents on site from students with a speed.
3: Then select video from lengthy Gigs and clip trim out.
4: Connect to other HD drives at home and back up the selected clips and remove the mass of Gigs from the day.
5: Free of wires
what a joy.
One area i am excited about is when i am at work abroad.
I teach people to fly paraglider past 26 years now.
After the days tuition, I de brief all my students and answers questions.
Days gone by I have to address areas of safety and point out at a particular time in the flight a moment of concern. Generally I would have a blank look.
Since air drop became available I can add video to a phone or tablet from my camera and trim a clip and share with the group.
We all sit in a room over looking the French Alps and I air drop a small clip, straight away the room go’s silent, laughter stops and you can hear only the noise of the birds out side.
All see the naughty pilot pushing, with my voice advising get the hell away from that area of risk, the risks are seen by all on their phones iPads.
Everyone makes a sigh sound and the shock of what might have happened is imbedded for life, my job just became less stressful.
Ultimately this knowledge reduces risks such as injuries or death, mountain flying is big air and big risk.
The reason I share these moment at work, is often and not the videos are endless Gigs of the day x 7 students of Gigs, I can remember in my head the events clearly.
All i have to do is scrub through the entire videos and I have my 30 seconds of the most important video.
So with the Gnarbox = all plug in your SD card, Rob picks out trims and imports these into LF and export, either airdrop or play on the projector.
So to me the Gnarbox is a tax loss for the buisness and more than that a method to retain safety at work. I am only starting to find out the work flow I use the Gnarbox for and guess what I do not even own one
