Gold Ingot USB Drive May Be More Valuable Than Your Data

by Lambert Varias

Here’s a flash drive that will fit right in with Computer Choppers‘ and Stuart Hughes‘ luxury gadgets. Speaking of both manufacturers, did you know that the two have an ongoing spat? Anyway. While we’ve featured a gold brick-like flash drive before, this one really does have gold on it.

gold ingot usb flash drive from geekstuff4uMeasuring about 3.2″, this flash drive has a wooden case – Japanese bigleaf magnolia, if you’re interested in specifics – that’s coated with high-quality gold leaf from Kanazawa City in the Ishikawa Prefecture in Japan. Kanazawa City’s association with gold leaf dates back hundreds of years; in fact Kanazawa literally means “marsh of gold”. Until today Kanazawa City still accounts for 99% of Japan’s high-quality gold leaf, and the material is used extensively in the city’s crafts. In other words, this flash drive is legit.

You can order the 4GB Gold Ingot USB drive from GeekStuff4U for approx. $186 (USD). Legit indeed. Each flash drive is made-to-order, and once you send for one your purchase cannot be cancelled. Although I think the only people who would even consider buying this already have the dollar and the desire, and would never back down from what would be to them is a petty transaction.
