Race Car USB Memory Card Reader has Flat Tires

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  October 21, 2008


Most of the USB memory card readers I come across are rather pedestrian. Conversely, this one is rather automotive.

ElectroJoe’s Motor Maniac is a 16-in-1 memory card reader that looks like a (slightly deformed) little red race car. Now it’s anyone’s guess why the wheels are sticking out at a weird angle, but you still get the point that it’s a vehicle.

Just plug it into any spare USB port, and you’ll be able to read flash memory cards from pretty much any digital camera or portable media player you can throw at it. And while data is transferring from card to computer, the vehicles headlights illuminate. As an added bonus, it also doubles as a USB hub, adding 3 extra 2.0 compliant ports.

The Motor Maniac can be found over at UK Electronics giant Play.com for £17.99 (appx. $31 USD).
