A concrete USB drive! Excuse me?

by Gareth Mankoo

Now why would anyone, besides a construction worker or maybe Bob the Builder, want to own a USB drive that’s not only made of concrete, but also looks extremely ugly and weighs as much as its capacity. Maybe it will give you the creeps to even hold in your hand, leave alone inserting it in your computer’s USB slot. It may well just crumble and break if not treated properly or may break something else in the process.

The concrete USB drive is the brainchild of one Shu-Chun Hsiao. The weight of the device (in grams) is proportional to the capacity of it. I really have no special comments on this one. Do you?
