A Japanese company called solidalliance has come up with Mnemosyne, an aluminum cube that holds an otherwise ordinary 16GB flash drive inside. But it’s not that simple: the cube is actually a puzzle.

It’s made of smaller pieces that you have to slide apart before you can get to the flash drive. That’s the flash drive right there, the one one that looks like a domino piece. Here’s what solidalliance has to say about their product: “As we wanted our USB flash drive to be used with care and attention, we chose a precious, expensive, bulky and heavy material that would be difficult to use.”

WOW. So if you want people to use your product with “care and attention”, you screw them over by giving them a needlessly complicated piece of crap? Why don’t you just give us flash drive parts in a brown paper bag scribbled with assembly instructions written in hieroglyphics?

And there’s another catch: the Mnemosyne is priced at a whopping $10,410 (USD). Wow. Apparently to solidalliance, rich people are stupid. I hope that’s not true.
