Back when Iron Man 2 came out, there were some Iron Man USB flash drives floating around, and I have to say I thought they were kind of silly looking. They looked more like bobble-heads to me than a serious action hero collectible.
While I haven’t had time to watch the most recent Pirates movie, there are still many people who love Johnny Depp’s drunken Jack Sparrow character. This this little handmade Jack Sparrow USB drive is perfect for fans of the drunken rogue pirate.
Who doesn’t know Batman?
I’ve always been a fan of superheroes, but the thing I love the most about the caped crusader was that he didn’t possess any superhuman or special powers; he was human, but he was damn good at being one.
…at least I don’t think it will. Of course the idea of plugging anything that looks like a bomb into one of your USB ports might be a risky endeavor. This is exactly the sort of drive that would be loaded with a keylogger, root kit or trojan.
This concept design isn’t that far off. Almost everyone has some spare memory cards that need to be used in some form or fashion. There’s not much you can do with one once you get a newer, bigger one, so this concept that collects these microSD cards and turns the combined storage into a larger USB flash drive makes a lot of sense.
We’ve seen NES controllers turned into flash drives and NES cartridges used as cases for external hard drives. But neither of those mods are as awesome – or as ridiculous – as what Instructables user Ed Lewis made: a NES cartridge flash drive with a complementary NES console USB port.
The latest concept design from Art Lebedev Studio is an unusual one. If the Art Lebedev Studio sounds familiar, you probably recognize the name as the people that teased us with lots of cool looking OLED keyboards for years.

Perfect for downloading copies of the Master Control Program from your PC, these TRON-inspired lightcycles are the latest in the barrage of TRON licensed goodies to hit in anticipation of TRON:Legacy’s impending release.
A while back, I told you guys about some CD-R disks that look like old 3.5″ floppies. In the story, I said that I’d much rather have a 3.5″ floppy USB drive, and Technabob reader Charles Mangin of Option8 has now indulged us with one.
You might know Aram Bartholl as the man who came up with CAPTCHA business cards. Bartholl is making waves once more with yet another clever and still geeky work of art. Bartholl calls it Dead Drops, and the idea is simple – he embedded five flash drives into walls or curbs around New York so people can anonymously share files with each other.
These new Mimobot flash drives look pretty cool because when they are not in use, they look like stormtroopers. When you take off the helmet to plug it in to your computer, you’ll find either Luke Skywalker or Han Solo hiding beneath.
LaCie today rolled out an unusual new USB flash drive, which is so tiny you can leave it plugged into your computer all the time and never notice it sticking out of the side.
