CES is a time of bad photoshopping and the above image is a perfect example. That said, the product it hopes to sell is quite compelling. It’s basically a USB-C desktop hard drive that connects to and powers USB-C devices – primarily the new MacBook.
Called the LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drive, the drive has a single USB-C port and a power port. The USB-C simultaneously powers the device its connected to and carries data so you can drop your MacBook on your desk and start storing mad data.
No pricing yet but they are expecting to see 5GB/s transfer speeds and it also supports standard USB 3.0. Look for it later this year.
