iTwin is a portable device that allows simple and safe data transfer between any two online computers from any location, even when you are overseas. It creates a robust, peer-to-peer, hardware-enabled, AES-256 encrypted connection between the two computers.
Ok, enough of that marketing talk. Here’s my take on it. iTwin is a portable physical device that creates a connection between 2 computers (like a virtual private network) without wires or any complicated setup at all. You don’t have to know the other computer’s IP address, or set up some username and password, or worry about firewall problems. You just need to plug iTwin in, and you’re connected to the other computer. Possibilities are endless, but right now iTwin is just offering file-sharing. But I’m sure you can see what other possibilities might be. Think of this as a physical cable without the cable. You can do anything with it – like Remote Desktop without having to create a dynamic DNS or knowing the other side’s IP address; running applications located on the other computer; and anything complicated to set up on your PC just to connect both computers.
