HyperDisk – the lightning-fast portable hard drive that's smaller than a credit card – has entered the last 24 hours of its Kickstarter campaign, having smashed its modest HK$ (US$10,052 / £7,639 / AU$14,707) target by a whopping 6,000%.

The HyperDisk is a remarkable piece of hardware for a number of reasons, both in terms of its size and its specs. Physically, the drive is only 45g with dimensions of 73.9 x 42.8 x 10.9mm – only 2mm taller than an Airpod – putting the size of other portable hard drives to shame, especially given its technical performance.
