That apart, the device also lets you share stored content with up to five devices at once!

The device boasts compatibility with AirPlay, and thereby would allow easy streaming of movies onto the big screen via Apple TV. You will also be able to stream music to compatible speakers.

Another innovation that has been ushered in to the CES showcase is the handcrafted, silver-plated LaCie Sphere, which takes its form thanks to the design by Christofle.

The Sphere has been handcrafted and silvered in France, and is a hard drive that would be apt for your upgraded home or office workstation.

To be made available for customers sometime this quarter in a 1TB capacity via the LaCie Online Store, select concept stores, and Christofle retail stores, the Lacie Sphere is one device you would want to lay your hands on.

The third device that comes to CES from the LaCie stables is the Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2, which is said to be the fastest portable storage solution ever.

The storage option is said to be made to deliver speeds up to ten times faster than any mobile USB 3.0 hard drive. The Thunderbolt 2 has been designed by Neil Poulton, and would be one handy tool for videographers, as it would offer performance and capacity required by them.

Besides, it allows for streaming and editing of 4K or 3D video on the go. According to the company the LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 can be made yours by the first quarter of this year.
