USB Steampunk – They Simply Get More Amazing

Back in June of 2009 I made a joke that GetUSB.info had a USB Steampunk award, now I’m seriously considering it.  Especially after seeing this new rendition.

Skywalker USB Drive Leaves You Speechless

In the beginning of July Engadget posted an article about a new release of Star Wars USB drives, not that we need more, but it was a fun little gallery – yet, not impressive enough to make you buy.  Today that changed with this artist’s rendition of what he thinks a Star Wars USB drive should look like.

No price as I don’t think these are for sale, but definitely a sweet little project for some bored teen. Continue Reading

Winner – USB Steampunk Award

If, GetUSB.info had an award for best Steampunk drive, this would get it.  Set in a nice wood case, this Steampunk USB drive is riddled with over 30 mechanical parts from six different watches.  Some parts are from watches that are over 100 years old.

The 16GB hand crafted USB Steampunk also holds 26 Ruby gems which catch the light from different angles.  When the stick is plugged in the standard green LED illuminates and also creates a nice look.  Unfortunately no picture of it connected. This prize winning Steampunk took nearly 12 hours to complete…and looks fantastic.  What do you think? Continue Reading
