Eye-Fi: Do you want Web 2.0 with your 2GB?

Category: Dojo, JavaScript, Showcase

I can just picture Dylan and Alex in a meeting with someone pitching:

So, we want to have a flash memory card, and put an Ajax application on it.

Well, they did it. Eye-Fi has launched and it combines WiFi with a 2GB card.

With Eye-Fi, your photos can be automatically sent to any number of popular online photo services (Shutterfly, Flickr, Facebook, SmugMug, etc.) and to your computer all via wifi. No need to dock your camera, sync the photos to your computer and then upload your photos to the various photo services. Just configure the wifi and start taking pictures! It’s that easy!

SitePen helped develop the application, using their trusty Dojo. Worlds are colliding.

They talked about it yesterday [Nov 12th] on the Daily Giz Wiz – Episode 441: http://twit.tv/dgw441

Sounds pretty cool, but I am normally not near my computer when I have my camera. :)
I am sure some people will come up with some cool uses with this card.

Pity only Americans can buy them…

@eugene: lol it’s like the RFID credit cards, steal the number if they walk by you.
I personally think this is a neat idea, but I, like Eric, and not near my computer when I do photography. But it could have tons of other uses.

What’s the differance between this and my Wi-Fi enabled laptop with built in card reader?

You don’t have to uploade stuff manually, that’s what
