This beautiful & sleek USB 2.0 flash drive is from LaCie and is called PetiteKey. But don’t be fooled by its size. As LaCie puts it…”Mighty Strength. Mini Size.” Not only it is extremely sturdy, it is also 100m water-proof!
Flash drives have come a long way in every shapes and sizes. We have already given several examples, here’s one more. Check out the Biscuit USB flash drive, which actually looks like a real biscuit put together (as the name suggests). The device also has a red LED indicator which turns on when the flash drive is in operation.
It’s not the first time we are coming across key drives….well I mean “key” shaped key drives. Previously we saw LaCie bringing before us the key looking key drives which had the metallic appearance but here we see some that are colorful.
My first USB thumb drive was a Kingston 64MB which I bought in sometime early 2003. I was a proud owner and remember people asking me about the price and where I got it from. Things have changed drastically since then. Kingston just launched their newest thumb drive with a whooping capacity of 256 GB. Imagine that!
Hopefully you never mix up your flash drives with your keys. How could you? The only thing they share are just the word ‘key’. You had already been carrying a bunch of keys figuring out which one is for the door and which for the locker when LaCie brings before you a key-shaped storage solution, that are actually “key” drives! How ironic!
Why do people call a thumb drive a ‘thumb drive’? Possibly because, it has the size of a thumb and is a flash drive. But the example above seems to be much more than that. Called the Yakuza Finger, this set of thumb drives look really like the original thing.
