Vulkano Place-Shifting Box Up For Pre-Order

Monsoon Multimedia's place-shifting, time-shifting Vulkano wonder box might actually encourage you to place-shift your butt off the couch, boasting a variety of ways to enjoy your media on the go. And it's now available for pre-order, shipping on August 10.

The Vulkano, hoping to be a jack of all trades, will stream your photos, videos, music and television content to your smartphone or computer over 3G or Wi-Fi. You'll also be able to schedule and view recorded programming from anywhere with a wireless connection. And beyond streaming your own content, you'll have full YouTube offerings in 1080p (HD Justin Bieber!), with Google TV, Netflix and Hulu support arriving "in the near future" - so perhaps hold off on ordering until Monsoon actually delivers these catalogues, if you consider that a selling point.
