Sony does Surface-like photo transfers

Hey, look at this doodad. It’s similar to a near-field technology feature that Microsoft showed off a while ago with its Surface technology except this is from Sony . You basically drop your camera on top of that cube, which is actually a media storage device. The cube senses that your camera is there and starts backing up your photos while whisking them onto the screen at a sustained rate of 375 megabytes per second with a maximum throughput of 560 megabytes per second.

No pricing or availability yet but can you really put a price on flying pictures? I’d say yes and I bet Sony says yes too and I bet that after Sony’s done saying yes the price comes in around $400 or $500 just for the cube.
