Something new straight form Japan – a handmade USB Flash Drive Skull Ring. Yes, you’ve heard it right… these are 2GB USB flash drives in the form of a Skull that attaches to your finger just like a normal ring. It might be a bit strange for everyone’s taste, but if you like skulls and such this might be a perfect addition to your collection. Also a great and somewhat unique thing that is also a great gift idea for a true geek…
The chin of the skull is removable, revealing a normal USB connector for using the 2GB flash storage you’ve got available in the ring. You can choose a USB flash drive skull ring from 8 different color variations, these are: Antique Gold, Antique Silver, Black, Matt Black, Pink, Purple, Silver and Turquoise Blue. All are very detailed and you can consider each of the rings to be unique, because it is hand made, although that is also the reason for their quite high price.
These hand made rings with flash memory are available for $156.
Mimoco’s Vinyl Art Series Flash Drives are really cool looking USB flash drives, although a bit expensive, but there is a reason for that. And now they are available even in a Star Wars themed series, officially licensed of course. Two of your favorite galaxies collided to create four awesome Star Wars mimobot crossover characters – Chewbacca and R2D2 against Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper. All four are a must if you are a true Star Wars fan, but you can settle with even one if your favorite character is among the four models…
The drives are available in 1GB capacity and are preloaded with bonus removable Star Wars mimobot content like exclusive wallpapers, desktop icons, original trailers, and a soundByte application featuring actual audio from the Star Wars saga. They come with a convenient color matching hoodie, making them look even better, so you can carry your Star Wars Mimobot everywhere. Just have in mind that all four characters are limited editions so there are actually just 2,500 to 3,500 units each, so hurry to get yours now.
Each of the Star Wars themed mimobots is priced at $69.
SanDiskrolled out the sleek SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition USB Flash Drive. A tribute to Ducati’s distinctive Italian design and engineering, the new drive has the same glossy red chassis and black trim as the Ducati Corse team motorcycles now racking up victories on the MotoGP circuit.
The true Ducatisti as aficionados of Ducati motorcycles call themselves, will appreciate the attention to detail in the SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition USB Flash Drive, including the Ducati Corse logo on top of the drive and the red tail light that illuminates whenever the drive is inserted into the USB.
On the inside, the drive offers a generous 4 gigabytes (GB) of capacity and front-of-the-pack read and write speeds of 20 megabytes per second – the fastest of the SanDisk portfolio of consumer USB drives. In other words, there isn’t a long wait to fill the drive’s big fuel tank with documents, photos, music and other digital data.
The SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition USB Flash Drive comes with a custom lanyard, as well as SanDisk’s RescuePRO Deluxe software for recovering data that is accidentally deleted. The drive is compatible with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and versions 10.1.2 or better of the Mac operating system.
The drive has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $124.99 in the United States. It is expected to be available in North America and Europe in August, and worldwide in September.
