Routers with BitTorrent support aren’t exactly new, but any device that makes watching “The Shield” easier is alright in my book. This one’s from Planex (the MZ-04G, to be exact) and, unfortunately, will probably only be available in Japan. Routers like this are great because, rather than leaving your entire electricity-hungry rig on all night to grab torrents of, you know, Linux distros, you can just keep the router on. The built-in BitTorrent client will churn away while you sleep. Two USB ports means you can add gigs upon gigs of storage to the router. High-def rips for the win, amigos.
Again, while we’ll never see this particular guy over here, it’s good to see these types of routers gain in popularity.
