UPDATE: This article is a joke. Sandisk haven’t created this product and I don’t think they ever will. The reason why the MC2Cube shown below is so cool is because it’s an ice cube, liquified in Photoshop. I had a lot of fun creating this article so I hope you enjoyed it. Can’t wait until next year!
Rumors had been circulating in the last couple of days that Sandisk are going to be releasing the worlds first MC2cube technology. The new tech is rumored to eliminate the need for memory cards entirely.
The aptly named MC2 crystal moulded cube is said to offer image transfer speeds around the speed of light (E = mc2). Instead of the traditional method of using a memory card reader in a device, Sandisk have harnessed a new metamaterial in the MC2cube which is able to transfer large amounts of data using wave-particle duality. The breakthrough came from the new metamaterial F Stop Lounge wrote about in January of last year, in the article “New Technology: A Camera Without A Lens – Metamaterial Aperture“.
From what we can see from the leaked picture the MC2Cube mounts directly to the camera’s hot shoe instead of using the memory card reader located on the side or bottom of the camera. The new recording device is said to using the camera’s flash connectivity found on the hot shoe, RAW images are able to be transferred directly to the MC2Cube’s new compound metamaterial at the speed of light. It’s been rumored all devices which feature a hot or cold shoe will work once the algorithm has been setup and initialised using the manufacturers firmware.
There has been no official response from Sandisk at this time, however we are told through a source the new technology should be officially announced in the next couple of weeks. F Stop Lounge will bring you all the updates on pricing and availably as soon as they come to hand so please stay tuned ;)
It’s our hope to continually share our imaging knowledge and experience for free. To support us in this effort please consider making your next purchase through our partner Amazon. The price will stay the same for you, but a small commission is attributed back to all of the contributors at F Stop Lounge.
Thanks in advance for showing your support and we wish you all the best in your photographic journey.
