Infinitec has debuted what is reportedly the world's first Infinite USB memory drive, allowing users to stream content from their PCs to most other gadgets all thanks to a little USB stick.

The Infinitec IUM is a plug-and-play device that claims to be compatible with with any device that supports traditional flash drives or has a USB port. Users can stream and share content, even HD media, between devices over a Wi-Fi network (802.11b/g/n).

Since it streams rather than holds content, there is an "infinite" amount of storage space. Get it?

Some suggested devices include computers/laptops/netbooks, gaming consoles (i.e. Xbox 360, Wii and PS3 if it ever works again), DVD/Blu-ray players and even digital photo frames. Just note that the host laptop for the drive, however, has to be running Windows XP, Vista or 7.

Infinitec is planning a major international release for their little gadget, when it is debuted in the U.S., Canada, Europe and the Middle East this July 1 for $129. That price, though, could change from country to country.

    I don't quite get it. what if you dont have a wireless network at home, let alone a second one, how much space does it store? is it not actually a storage device if there's no wifi?
