Elecom Takes A Page From Dr. Mephesto’s Research – Creates An SD Card Reader With Four Slots

Isn’t it cool when the far-off technology you see in movies or on TV eventually becomes a reality? The Xbox 360’s Kinect is making those crazy gestural interfaces seen in Minority Report feasible, and now Elecom is applying some of the science fiction seen on South Park to their USB peripherals. Specifically, Dr. Mephesto’s ground-breaking research into multiple asses.

I mean that’s clearly what inspired Elecom to create this SD card reader that’s capable of holding not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 SD cards, including the SDHC and SDXC varieties, at one time. So users of professional DSLRs that can hold and write to a couple of SD cards at one time don’t have to worry about them fighting over their old card reader’s single slot. It’s yet another one of those devices that’s readily available to buy if you live in Japan, but if you’re anywhere else you’ll need to deal with an importer and their considerable markup, like Geek Stuff 4 U who wants ~$48 (¥3,980) for it.

    I'm holding out for the Swiss cheese, crossed with a beard. And chalk.
