Problem Definition
Disks accumulate rapidly While people getting increasingly dependent on computers with the need to back up more data. What labels say on disks is limited and vague in memory as time passes. Taking a long time for disk device to read through piles of disks and find the one you want is inefficient.

Target Group
Computer Users

Design Concept
X-RAY, a handy slot-in disk drive only browses the file names on the disc and shows the file names on the touch screen rapidly. Like X ray, it can go through any content on the disk.
