USB Harmonica is 2GBs Of Sweet Soul

Backyard Brand is looking to coin a new phrase with their FlashHarp USB drive.  I’m classifying this under hand crafted USB because it’s a relatively simple mod of a harmonica to include a USB drive. Granted, Backyard came up with the idea, so props to them.

They do a good job of selling the concept with: “Even if you never master the art of blowing the harp, you’ll never have to throw this harmonica in the back of a drawer. Sweet gift for anybody, young or old, who really likes music.”

If this stick gains any kind of traction we can expect china to knock off a plastic version of this in about 3 months or less.  Granted, it’s not your typical custom USB drive, but for those looking to get the original mod, head over to Etsy and grab yourself a 2GBer of sweet soul for $44USD.

USB Drive Is Double Take of DDR RAM Memory

USB sticks come in many different sizes, shapes and colors, but today is the first time we’ve seen a custom USB drive with the look and feel of RAM memory.  The Segon Turbo drive is another release from Brando on unique USB shapes. Brando claims it’s ingenious and exquisite, which I think is a bit too much on credit, but definitely a different look.  Too bad you can’t use the PCI looking slot to boost your real RAM needs.

The Segon Turbo drive includes a push-pull design for the USB connector making it a good portable product with protection to the connector. Some notable software functionality comes preloaded on the IC controller chip, such as:
  1. Security Manager
  2. Boot Manager
  3. Flash Mail Manager
  4. PC Lock Manager
  5. Bookmark Manager
  6. Security Folder
Available in a 2 and 4GB sizes, starting at just $12. Continue Reading

LaCie is Pushing Currency via Custom USB Drive

LaCie introduced their CurrenKey earlier this week which is a silver or copper USB key in the shape of brushed metal coinage.  The design is definitely eye catching, but not all that practical.

Dealing with USB sticks day in an day out, having an odd shaped USB stick is the last thing anyone will want…or at least ultimately realize.  With the CurrenKey the round shape eliminates the use of other USB ports on the left or right.  Also, with many laptops these days the USB port is vertical, not horizontal, making the round shape impossible to connect unless you lift up your laptop or stack something underneath it. LaCie did a great job in design work with the metal die-cast construction, but lacks in overall design of usable shape. Continue Reading
