Whatever your particular (or peculiar) pleasure, there’s a novelty USB drive to fit your freaks. Robots, jewelry, supply dispensers, waterproof submarines (what?)… and those are some of the more normal notions for USB drives out there.
What better way to store your important files than inside the body a tiny little robot?
These USB flash drives sort of remind me of Futurama’s Bender Bending Rodriguez, what with their bendy metallic arms. But these robots won’t tell you to bite their shiny metal behinds.

Feeling retro? If you’ve got a hankering to cram an old 3.5″ floppy disk into your computer, but it has no floppy drive, now you can live out your floppy fantasies by stuffing one into your almost as outdated CD-R drive.
These CD-R discs may be square, but they’ll work in a standard CD or DVD drive despite their non-round shape.
For some strange reason, I never thought I’d write a story about floppy disk coasters twice. But these really floppy, floppy disk coasters I found over on Etsy today were just too good to be ignored.
Modeled after the truly retro 5-1/4″ floppy disk, these soft coasters are handmade from colorful felt, and just like their real-life cousins, are guaranteed not to store any of your data reliably.
