Well and even leaving aside direct negotiation with Space Monkey, one of the cool things about it is that you OWN the drive. If you decide to take it offline, you can. If you decide you want to just use it as a hard drive, you can do that too, and Space Monkey allows you to wipe their code.
Interestingly, you can use your Space Monkey drive without a subscription to the cloud service, however you’ll need a program from Space Monkey that wipes the data off your drive and turns it into a typical backup hard drive, that does not connect to the Internet. You’ll also need a male-to-male USB cable, not included, but it’s an option.
Also, if you take your drive offline at any time, you won’t be penalized by the company, nor will you lose any data already synced to the cloud. CNET Review
So what that means is that someone could design a safe-based software for the Space Monkey hardware and people could have the kind of plug and play ease of use.
Alternatively, Space Monkey’s initial goal on kickstart was only 100K, which means that they have some manufacturer out there who was willing to start production with that amount pledged.
Given the strength of the crowdsale, I certainly think that MaidSafe could put together something similar. One of the PODS might even be able to do it.
