About

Using different cloud services gives you more storage space. It's awesome, but always forgetting which cloud you stored the file is cumbersome. The Syncube App simply integrates all clouds together as one big cloud.

Not only does Syncube allow you to store files into your USB hard disk at home, but it also enables you to retrieve those files wherever you go. You never have to worry about limited storage space for your smartphone.

Want to take down the photos once shared, but cannot find it or do not remember with whom you shared it with? Syncube's advance sharing control features allows you to determine how long a file will be shared, to who, and how many times the item can be accessed, etc. You will have full control at all time.


Once you store your media files on Syncube, you can stream the movie to your smartphone directly without using any additional space on your phone. Use your smartphone to watch movies will never be a problem.

Press Coverage

A device that automatically and securely backs-up media files while simultaneously charging smartphones wirelessly has been launched on Kickstarter. 

Backup and charging are the daily work for most of smartphone users. Is there a better and smarter way to do it ? Syncube does.

 De Syncube op Kickstarter wil het makkelijker maken om je iPhone-bestanden te synchroniseren. Door je iPhone op dit apparaat te leggen, kun je namelijk alle bestanden op je iPhone hier naartoe verplaatsen. Tegelijkertijd wordt hij draadloos opgeladen.

As we interact with our smartphone in new different ways, we store pictures, videos, and files every day but very quickly we begin to run out of memory, yet we are too lazy to deal with it. According to our research, the majority of smartphone users backup and clean up their device every 1-2 months or they do it when they are forced to. Backing up and cleaning up our smartphones shouldn't be hard ! We have too many things in life that needs cleaning, our desks, living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. Our smartphones shouldn't take time to clean up!

Dropbox, Google Drive, Box... All of them are free and easy to use, but I have a "pictures" folder in every cloud ! How do I keep track of these pictures? If I have to delete it which public clouds do I need to go to? Can they backup each other? Do I actually have a backup saved in my home?  

As the demand for PC continues to drop, more and more people now use smartphone and tablets instead of computers. However, as technology nowadays evolve in a tremendous speed, most functions of smartphone and tablets may become too complicated for some of the users who never use computers in the past.

For those who are fluent with computers, the process of backing up files are complicated. We are stuck with the small memory size mobile device we had. Cloud services like Google Drive and Dropbox provide automatic backup services for free, but those free cloud space are never enough. Additional cloud storage space meant additional costs for the user.

 Although Google+ has a powerful fix photo function but it is extremely difficult to post those fixed photos onto Facebook. This is because large public cloud companies will not collaborate with each other.

Risks and challenges

After several generations of prototypes and successive improvements, the latest Syncube have undergone extensive testing for over three months. We are about to start trial run production and finalize the software APP functions at this stage.

In order to make sure everything is on track, we already reserve the key components, contracted with a very experienced manufacturer, and have gone through design for part of manufacturing process. As a result, we are near ready to begin manufacturing the first batch of Syncubes.

With most of the product developments completed, we still have some hurdles ahead of us. The final end product may not have one hundred percent of the features shown on this page due to technical issues that we might encounter, hardware, firmware, and software are all being tested. However, we will overcome those difficulties and deliver a great product to you.

We are a newly start-up company with lots of innovation ideas based on our solid technology background . YOUR SUPPORT IS OUR MOTIVATION FOR MOVING FORWARD. Thank you.
