ITwin is a nifty device that let’s you move files between computers without having to put them all on a Flash drive. The iTwin connects to your computer via USB, but allows you to transfers files to other computers through the cloud.

All you have to do it plug one iTwin into a computer and set it up, from there you choose what files you want to share via iTwin. Then, you leave that computer running with the iTwin connected. You put the other iTwin in another machine and you can use that to access the files from the first computer.

The iTwin actually came out at the beginning of this year, and has been Windows-only up until this point. But, this summer iTwin will finally bring Mac support. When the Mac support comes new users can buy the new iTwin that works with both Windows and OS X, meanwhile existing users will be able to download an update to support both systems, which is a nice touch.

Another nice touch is the fact that iTwin encrypts all of the data that’s transferred between computers. The files are actually transferred over Amazon’s S3 servers, but they aren’t kep there, meaning you don’t have to worry about the data being lost somewhere in the cloud. If you want to get your hands on an iTwin device it’ll cost you $99.
