Mnemosyne: $10,000 Aluminum USB Drive: One of the Most Ridiculously Expensive Useless Pieces of Sh*T I have Ever Seen in My Enti

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.”

mnemosyne-2

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.
