Statue of Liberty USB Drive Welcomes Immigrant Memories

by Paul Strauss

America – land of the free, home of the brave, and a place where memories are made – and stored in digital files with names like DSCN00043.JPG. Whether you think this Statue of Liberty USB flash drive is a tacky souvenir or not, it definitely is one of the more unusual USB drives I’ve seen in a while.

Other than the color of the base stone, I’d say these 4.3-inch tall Lady Liberty drives from Super Talent are pretty accurate 1:421 scale replicas of the real thing – other than the fact that they get their bluish-green hue from dyed rubber instead of weathered copper verdigris. I suppose it would have been pretty hard to make a copper USB drive with a little tiny staircase and people inside. But I bet it could be done. Then you’d have to leave it out in the elements for 200 years to get that perfect patina.

The drives are available in 4GB ($14 USD), 8GB ($19.50) and 16GB ($34.45) versions over at Amazon. As an added bonus, you’ don’t have to take a boat ride and then wait in line for 3 hours to see what’s inside this version.
