OK, these aren’t really C-3PO USB flash drives, but they do bear a resemblance. I’ve rarely seen golden robots of any kind, except in Star Wars. This cute ‘bot also looks like it’s got the body of a LEGO minifig.
If I am to be honest, my least favorite film of the first three originals is The Empire Strikes Back. The bit where Luke gets crammed inside the dead tauntaun was kind of cool. I did like that flick better than say any of the new trilogy, especially the one with Jar Jar Binks.
I’m sure Dr. Sheldon Cooper didn’t go to prom, but if he did he would have worn these flash drive cuff links.
Designed by Ravi Ratan, each cuff link has a capacity of 2GB and can be engraved with up to 8 characters, perfect for “LINUXFTW”.
I took my 8-year-old son to see Iron Man 2 last Friday, and he was all excited about it after seeing the action on the previews. We had only been watching the film for about half an hour before he asked me when it would be over and was ready to leave.
Last month, Xbox 360 users were finally given the option to transfer their user data to a flash drive. Note that you can use any flash drive for this purpose, but that won’t stop companies like SanDisk from releasing “official” Xbox 360 flash drives.
…or something like that. The point is, this flash drive is as secure as Maid Marian’s chastity belt. Other password-protected flash drives use software for authentication. Anyone who’s watched a Hollywood flick that involves computers knows that software can be easily hacked just by furiously typing on the keyboard until the big-ass “ACCESS DENIED” in bright red is replaced by an equally big-ass green “ACCESS GRANTED” on the computer screen.
If you want to keep your kids, girlfriend, wife or other significant other out of your porn downloads, this is most definitely NOT the way to do it.
This Over 18 USB drive from Japan’s Solid Alliance doesn’t do anything special, other than tell you that whatever is stored on the device is supposed to be for those over 18.
Have you gone nutty yet over all of the USB crapgadgets that are coming out of Japan? I haven’t! Well, here are two more USB sticks that might tickle your fancy.
Personally, I have one very plain 16GB USB flash drive that I use and a bunch of older sticks that I don’t use anymore.
Here’s another kooky – yet violent – USB flash drive from China. This time, we’ve got memory that looks just like a bullet.
Now the guys over at ChinaGrabber say the drive is based on the the design of machine gun ammunition, but I think they look more like the bullets from an assault rifle.
Transformers fans, don’t miss the chance to grab the limited edition Autobot logo flash drive! Each flash drive comes in a special tin case and can carry up to 4 GB of data! The flash drive itself is in the logo’s forehead, so you don’t have to take the whole thing with you if you don’t want to.
In this case, the memory is embedded inside the sofa, but isn’t that the case with almost all of the other wacky flash drives on the market? I don’t know about you but I’d rather have my flash drive inside a sofa instead of a plastic UFO or Statue of Liberty or burger or credit card or T-Rex or bento box or kunai.
America – land of the free, home of the brave, and a place where memories are made – and stored in digital files with names like DSCN00043.JPG. Whether you think this Statue of Liberty USB flash drive is a tacky souvenir or not, it definitely is one of the more unusual USB drives I’ve seen in a while.
There’s something unique about this unassuming looking NES controller – and no, it’s not that it’s a flash drive. Gaming peripherals turned storage devices are a dime a dozen, but this flash drive requires a secret activation code.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that these credit card inspired USB flash drives weren’t manufactured with the approval of any major credit card bank. But that doesn’t make them any less cool to put in your wallet.
The Master Chief MIMOBOT isn’t a towering 7-footer with a 700 lb. armor like his video game counterpart, but he can store data. Like, up to 8 GB. And he has a huge head.
As you can see, Blue and Red Spartans have also enlisted to protect your spreadsheets and documents.
I could definitely go for some Japanese food for lunch today. Writing about this tiny flash drive in the shape of a Bento box special definitely put the idea in my head.
But on closer inspection, the miniature foodstuffs in this minuscule USB storage device don’t look all that appealing.
