[CES 2014] Eye-Fi has made a name for themselves when it comes to churning out wireless memory cards, and I would presume that they are checking out various avenues of income, by working on Eye-Fi Labs. Eye-Fi Labs happens to be an experimental platform for customers who want to preview and test new Eye-Fi technology. With Eye-Fi Labs, one will be able to host new mobile apps as well as beta product features as long as you use one of the compatible popular wireless memory cards prior to their availability to the masses.
Not only that, Eye-Fi will also make an announcement concerning a beta Mac desktop receiver software for its Mobi card, which will follow in the footsteps of its Windows desktop receiver rollout last month. The Eye-Fi Mobi card is now capable of transferring directly to both Mac and Windows desktops in an instant, opening up another brand new door for users when it comes to having additional options for photos and video transfer.
I guess this is sort of an interesting method to organize a trial run, and at least any issues can be fixed before it hits the mass market. Eye-Fi’s product development teams will monitor and engage directly with Lab participants so that they can continue to refine products based on customers’ needs, desires and feedback.
