Need some additional storage for your computer? Then you might want to check out these wacky hard drives, fashioned out of old VHS tapes. Sure, VHS tape tech is definitely obsolete, but aren’t hard drives on their way out too?
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.
While integrating a computer into a desk isn’t exactly an original idea, Will Urbina’s “The Desk” casemod is (literally) flashy and makes no effort whatsoever to hide the fact that the desk itself is the computer.
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.
Twitter lets people share even the littlest, most unremarkable things in their lives. This winter Vicon will release the Vicon Revue, a camera that promises to make “lifelogging” – making a photographic archive of your day – popular.
The aliens have landed! They’ve invaded your laptop and are reading all of your data! Or are they saving all your data and flying it off to the mothership to protect it?
These fun UFO USB flash drives come to us courtesy of crafter OrigamiMe (yeah, I know this isn’t origami).
Computer hardware specialist LaCie celebrates its 20th anniversary with the introduction of their latest line of external hard drives designed by the world-famous Philippe Starck. Starck describes his design for the hard drives as powerful magma that’s been captured and protected.
To celebrate the insanely popular Hello Kitty’s 35th anniversary, Sanrio teamed up with mimoco to come up with a flash drive cartoon character named Hey Flashy. I’m just kidding, of course they came up with Hello Kitty MIMOBOTs.
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.
Man, the classic, brick-sized Nintendo Game Boy sure gets a lot of love in the modding/hacking community. Like that retro-tacular iPhone case we showed you a few days ago. Or this Game Boy that someone managed to shove a 80GB SATA hard drive into.
Now we’ve certainly seen our share of odd food-themed USB drives here at technabob, but it seems that there’s an entire cottage industry in China dedicated to creating a never-ending supply of even weirder flash memory devices, seemingly just so we can write about them.
