Meninos Hard Drives Turn Storage Into Mini Works of Art

by Paul Strauss

When is a hard drive not just a hard drive? When it’s a tiny work of contemporary desktop art, of course.

Pringles Hard Drive

The artists of Brazil’s Meninos design studio first started out making these custom pop art hard drive cases for their friends. Now they’ve had the brilliant idea to release their wares to the rest of the world for us to enjoy.

Each one of their external USB hard drive cases is hand-assembled at their studio, using a custom acrylic case (complete with dual cooling fans) covered with a precisely applied vinyl wrapper of one of their designs. They’ll also make custom designs if you upload Adobe Illustrator art using their custom template.

While I love all of their designs, the Samuel L. Jackson Pulp Fiction model has to be my favorite (vinyl blood splatter not included).

While the cases aren’t cheap ($250 US without a drive, $400 to $620 US with one), I’ll forgive these guys since the designs are just so cool. Head on over to the Meninos Shop to see the complete collection.

    Who can put a price on art? The work of these artists from Brazil is priceless! I loved to find that out by technabob. There is just one small problem: seems I cannot chose a favorite one. Regards to all!

    My fave is definitely the tomato soup — I wonder how these guys will go with copyright?

    Will sell really well, no doubt.
