H-57 Missile USB Flash Drive: Explosives Not Included
October 2nd, 2011
USB sticks come in a variety of shapes and colors, but this is the first one I’ve seen that looks like a miniature missile. The retro packaging and allure of this flash drive is what makes it really cool.
H-57 is the Milan-based advertising company that was behind those cool typographical Star Wars posters. They’ve come up with the Intercontinental Ballistic Design Missile, which is of course, a wordplay on ICBM. The design is pretty interesting, and it must be funny to have something like this sticking out of your USB port.
It’s definitely an fun spin on USB flash drive design. I just wonder if this is a real product or just a one-off promotional. It probably won’t take long for some company in China to make some knock-offs. Hopefully, those ones won’t actually blow up your computer.
