I am always fascinated with Singapore start-ups

Especially those that are pioneering technology products and solutions.

We have seen others, such as Creative’s SoundBlaster (Mr Sim was

Just featured in the Straits Times recently in a fullpage feature)

And, in recent times, Razr’s series of gaming mice.

And so, when I was invited to iTwin’s worldwide launch on 10 October 2010

I was eager to see this interesting piece of technology in action.

iTwin is a USB-looking device that enables simple and safe data transfer

Between any two online computers by creating a peer-to-peer

Hardware-enabled AES-256 encryption connection.

iTwin is founded by Lux Anantharaman and Kal Takru, and is a

Spinoff from the Institute for Infocomm Research under AStar.

iTwin is also the first Singapore start-up showcased at the prestigous

TechCdrunch50 Conference in Silicon Valley. At the launch too, I met

Pete Bonee, a partner as Innosight Ventures Pte Ltd.

Pete used to be the Chief Operating Officer in several MNCs

And now lends his expertise to Innosight. Pete feels that

Innovation is key to the growth of any industry, and support

From venture capitalists is a spring board to further innovative

And invention. As a business development person, I can already

See several possibilities for this sleek Apple-like product.

I would like to connect between my office laptop and my

iMac at home – but alas it only works in a Windows environment

With Mac compatibility in the pipeline. I look forward

In anticipation.

Wow... this is really cool


"I would like to connect between my office laptop and my

You mean iTwin wants to enable windows files and OS X files to transfer to each other?

If they can do it would be cool, currently NTFS harddisk/files can't be write to Mac at all. If they can do it I will buy it for sure.

but firewire can already do this on the mac for eons

hey a passerby, though this is interesting, and u can encrypt data and transmission is over anywhere with wifi connection... the fact that ur iMac at home needs to be forever-on is an issue, an energy consuming one.

though it's really cool. like a remote receiver and transmitter.
