New Flash Drives Look Like Endangered Animals and You Can Rip Their Heads Off

I was thinking to myself just the other day that the only way my flash drive could possibly be better was if it looked like the polar bear from Lost. Even better would be if I had to rip the bear in half to plug it into the USB port on my computer. Active Media Products has pulled the wraps off three new flash drives based on endangered species that you can rip in half without having some animal loving hippie throw red paint on you.

Flash Drives

The line of flash drives comes in the aforementioned polar bear, panda bear, and penguin styles. Each of the drives is made from silicone rubber and is 2.2-inches tall. The drives also come with a key ring for hooking the storage device to your car keys.

Both Mac and PCs are supported and the drives will work in USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports. No drivers are needed on modern operating systems and you can get the drives in a three pack with one of each animal or individually. You can the drives in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB capacities. A three pack of 2GB drives is under $40. That penguin is kind of creepy; it reminds me of Meet the Spartans.
