About this project
iLuun Air is the world’s first wireless USB 3.0 flash drive created to work not just with your computer, but also with your mobile devices. With the iLuun Air, you can easily, quickly, and safely move data between computers, smartphones, and tablets without the need for Internet, cables, adapters, or the Cloud where hackers and others (e.g. 3rd party server operators) may gain access.
Never again worry about the storage capacity of your mobile device. With up to 256GB of wireless storage, the iLuun Air lets you store hundreds of movies or thousands of photos, songs, and documents, and access them on your smartphones or tablets. Finally a device that lets you enjoy your media all day, without the need for Internet or cables.
The iLuun Air is designed for convenience and portability, allowing you to enjoy and share your favorite contents without the limitations of Internet connections, cables, or connectors; and with up to 5 hours of continuous streaming time on a single charge, the possibilities are endless. So whether you are just sharing a presentation with colleagues at the office or keeping your kids entertained with their favorite movie on a long road trip, iLuun Air is the perfect companion.
Like your cellphones, TVs, and radios, the iLuun Air uses WiFi to transmit data across a network. The iLuun Air has a built-in wireless adapter that translates this data into a radio signal. This same signal will be transmitted via the iLuun Air’s built-in antenna, where it is then decoded. Once decoded, the data is sent to your mobile device. Since the iLuun Air acts as its own router, NO INTERNET CONNECTION IS NEEDED. And because the iLuun Air emits its own wifi network, all of your friends can also connect.
The free iLuun Air app for iOS and Android devices makes it easy to navigate and enjoy content wherever you are, whether at home or on-the-go. The simple to use App automatically displays your device’s content in a simple file system for quick and easy viewing of your digital media and files. The app sorts all the content on the drive according to its type, and you can simply select video, music, or photos from the menu in order to access that content. The App also offers user-friendly onscreen controls with several playback modes available.
Your smartphone, tablet or laptop may be great for capturing and sharing life’s moments, but with the ever-improving multimedia capabilities and contents now available on these devices, storage availability has become a huge problem for users. Luckily iLuun has come to the rescue with the new iLuun Air Wireless Flash Drive. Combining the convenience and capacity of portable storage with the proven durability and performance of solid state technology, it empowers you and your favorite devices by offering a fast, easy, reliable way to store, stream and share your precious moments, anywhere… anytime.
iLuun Air broadcasts its own wireless network, over which you can share, store and stream with up to 6 connected devices. When powered on, it creates a Wi-Fi network. Through this network you can connect any of your computers and mobile devices to the drive and access the files stored within. It is for this reason that no wires, Internet connection or mobile data is required. And don’t worry about losing access to your Internet Wi-Fi connection on your mobile device. Our technology allows for Internet pass thru mode, which enables you to access the web while still connected to the drive.
We all love our mobile devices, but as the cameras on these devices continue to take better pictures and higher resolution videos, the need for secondary storage options will only continue to grow. Available in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB, the iLuun Air adds storage space for more of your favorite music, photos, videos, movies, documents, and more. Take media or work files with you wherever you go--you're not limited by the storage on your portable devices any longer.
With the iLuun Air, you can seamlessly stream your videos, photos, music, and documents to your smartphones, tablets, and computers – wirelessly!
iLuun Air supports most of today's mainstream file extensions, so that you can easily stream all of your content directly from the disk without the inconvenience of having to convert files to compatible host device formats.
Supported File Formats:
Videos - WMV, AVI, MKV, MP4, MOV, FLV, MPG, RMVB, M4V, TS
Photos – JPG, BMP, PNG, TIF, TIFF
Audio - MP3, WAV, M4A, AAC
Documents - DOC, DOCX, PDF, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, TXT
iLuun Air allows you to easily share your favorite media with up to 6 other users simultaneously, or stream up to 3 different HD movies to three devices all at the same time. With the ability to support multi-platform wireless streaming between any combination of mobile devices, iLuun Air is perfect for setting up a fun media center with friends at a coffee shop, sharing your presentation with colleagues at a meeting, or entertaining your family during long road trips.
It's really a shame that smartphones and tablets come with such a limited amount of internal storage. And after the operating system and apps, the remaining space for digital content is much less than that. This is the reason iLuun Air Wireless is a must-have for savvy users who want to carry their entire digital library around with them. With the one-step backup and restore function, you can now free up valuable space on your smartphone and tablet by backing up your photos, videos, contacts, and other large files directly to the drive. You can even set the app to automatically do this for you when the drive is connected to your mobile device.
With the iLuun Air, there's no need to pay monthly fees for storage or worry about hackers and others (e.g. 3rd party server operators) gaining access to your content. You are also not limited to the need for an internet connection in order to simply access your content. The iLuun Air frees you from these limitations by providing a secure and versatile experience unlike any other.
Most other flash drives on the market are still stuck on the old and slow USB 2.0 or 2.1. iLuun Air is determined to be the best storage drive available hence the reason we adopted to use the new and improved USB 3.0. If you do not know much about USB technology, all you need to know is that the benefits of USB 3.0 far outweighs that of the older versions thanks to the improved power consumption, data rate, security, pairing reliability, and most importantly … SPEED.
With a busy life on the go and so much to do, the last thing you want is to spend extra time waiting for your files to transfer. Now you can step up to the next level of performance and take advantage of the USB 3.0 blazing speed and noticeably better battery life.
Wi-Fi convenience when you want it, and blazing fast USB 3.0 functionality when you need it – what else could you really ask for?
We believe in the power of design. We’ve gone through numerous prototypes to make the iLuun Air sleek, compact, and aesthetically appealing. Take a look below to see how the iLuun Air has evolved from its first design to its current and final design.
Beyond its performance and good looks, iLuun Air is designed for convenience. Looking at the iLuun Air from the outside, you'll see it’s the size of a standard USB flash drive. What's impressive, however, is how much we managed to pack inside. You should never have to sacrifice convenience for the functionality you really want. The drive also includes a key ring loop so you can easily attach it to your keychain, computer bag, backpack, or purse and go.
iLuun Air allows you to take a virtually-unlimited stream of photos and videos wherever you go. Because it's battery powered, you don't need to plug it in to an outlet, nor do you even have to be at home to use it. It can be used while you're on the go, either in the car or on public transport — you could easily stream content from the drive to your phone while the drive is in your bag or your pocket.
iLuun Air works anywhere -- no Internet connection, cables or router required.
Security is of utmost important to us. With no information being sent through a third party service, transferred through the Internet, or sent to the Cloud, iLuun Air is the perfect solution for conducting all matters private, personal or business related. Best of all, iLuun Air is always by your side so all of your personal and private data are safe and secure. In addition, we have incorporated built-in encryption to ensure file system security. Optional Wi-Fi password protection and 128-bit AES encryption are also implemented.
We live in a socially connected world so we understand the importance of staying connected with friends and family. It’s is for this reason that we made it so simple for you to share your favorite photos and videos directly from the drive to your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts – all from within our simple-to-use app. Now you can stay socially connected, even from remote locations so feel free to take as many vacation photos as you can for your friends to see.
As engineers, we are passionate about technology and beautiful aesthetic design. We are a small, tight-knit team made up of members who are experienced professionals in various fields. Although we have different backgrounds in engineering, design, finance, and marketing, we all share one common goal: to innovate the file storage and sharing space.
iLuun Air is changing file sharing and storage the same way the internet changed publishing. When everyone has access to a global market, great ideas flourish.
Let’s look at some examples of how the iLuun Air can be used in your daily life:
- You can move photos to free up space on your phone
- Stream HD movies
- Share your photos in a snap
- Bring your entire media collection with you wherever you go
For the foreseeable future, our lives will continue to shift away from the desktop and onto our mobile devices. The iLuun Air is a refreshing start for the next generation of file sharing and storage.

Risks and challenges
Like any hardware project, there are risks and challenges associated with manufacturing and supply chain logistics. We are working with a tier-one manufacturing partner that builds hardware products for some of the most renowned brands in the business.
That said, there is always a chance that unexpected changes or issues may arise during execution impacting the delivery schedule.
Though we are confident in our abilities and our manufacturing partners’ experience and skills in bringing iLuun to you as scheduled, we want to mitigate risks for any potential road bumps along the way.
We made it our duty to have a working product before coming to Kickstarter, however, we will face new challenges related to production, packaging and worldwide shipping.
It is very important to us that we perfect our production lines and build a product with the highest possible quality. As a backer of iLuun, you can be assured that we will do our very best in providing you the best product possible and to most certainly deliver on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
