Rubber Hard Drive from LaCie
Well it’s not exactly a rubber hard drive, but the enclosure has a squared pattern made of rubber in either blue or pink. LaCie teamed with a leading designer, Karim Rashid, to create this 3.3 inch storage drive called Skwarim. Capacity ranges from 30GB (pink) to 60GB (blue) and $149/$199 respectively. LaCie’s Senior Product Manager, Olivier Mirloup, saw a market for designer styled storage devices for those looking to stylize their techy look. No word on whether the blue or pink will be the only colors offered moving forward. We wonder if the rubber ads any durability to the HHD – probably not.
