Are you a forgetful klutz who always misplaces flash drives? Are you in the fashion industry and want to have a flash drive that fits your line of work? Or perhaps you’re you a baby with a loose diaper and a need for a flash drive?
The utilitarian metal casing of the hard disk drive now serves as a decorative cover for its descendant. This tiny flash drive has no moving parts, doesn’t need to be defragmented and is easier to mount.
We’ve seen a boutique line of flash drives that play upon the fact that data is invisible, which means we can’t see their containers being filled up even if they’re already “full” of data. Here’s another take on that amusing dissonance, an empty bottle with a USB drive cork stopper.
Back in 2008, we get our first look at the Zero Basic Mini Cooper flash drive. The red Cooper with a white top and stripes is the same one we saw years back. However, the company now has several additional styles for you to choose from.
I am a big fan of Transformers – going all the way back to my childhood spent transforming/breaking random Hasbro toys when they were too complex for a child to operate. The films are a bit “meh” if you ask me, but I have seen them all anyway.
I would have thought that people would be sick of Angry Birds by now. I guess not, seeing as how these Angry Birds USB drives by EMTEC have arrived. As usual you get the various Angry Birds and pig to store your data with.
Flash drives with themes and designs are nothing new, but if you’re really looking for something that pushes the form of a USB drive, Logical Art’s Empty Memory series may be the ones that you’re looking for.
We’ve seen plenty of USB drives, but this design is super cute if you like pigs. Funny thing, not everyone like pigs, but we all love bacon. Anyway, this concept USB design by Weplaygod is pretty neat and I don’t even like pigs.
Flash drives are becoming more of a necessity and less of a luxury. I used to travel with blank CDs stashed in my briefcase, just in case I needed to copy huge files, and fast. Now I forego the CDs and just go with my trusty USB drive instead.
Filling electronic gadgets with liquid just seems like a bad idea. But if you’re a beer connoisseur (and Budweiser happens to be your drink of choice), then you might want to check out this ridiculous flash drive.
Earlier this year, we featured a flash drive with a literally puzzling handmade casing, which requires the user to enter a 5-digit combination via a series of wheel locks to gain access to the flash drive itself.
I often use flash drives to share documents or files with other people, especially when they’re confidential or when they’re too large to send as email attachments. I use a 16GB USB drive, so I often already have tons of other files, some of them personal, on the flash drive that some of my colleagues borrow.
Last year we featured a pair of flash drive cufflinks. Luxury cufflink maker Ravi Ratan ups the ante this year with an even geekier pair of fasteners, perfect for those of you who are known by your loved ones as Support… Tech Support.
I currently have four USB drives in a tiny pouch in my bag. One drive is for work, one is for personal files, one is a backup of the projects during my final year in school, while the last drive is just for random stuff.
Apparently, Transcend is working on a 2 terabyte USB 3.0 flash drive. I think that’s about the best news that I’ve heard recently, because flash drives can never be big enough. The mythical 2TB drive will “be no longer than a human thumb and only a hair thicker than a penny”.
