Holy data storage, Batman!

Religious iconography meets USB flash memory.

There's been a lot of buzz recently about USB flash drives as an art form--these days, it seems like the gadget and design sectors of the blogosphere are all about Mimoco's kind of cute, kind of creepy Mimobots, and now Notcot is showcasing what it jokingly refers to as "Saint USB." But you won't find them in stores (or churches). These high-tech devotional statues are part of "Oh Maria, Keep My Data Safe," a project by Spanish graphic designer Luis Eslava. He considers them a statement about our "adoration" of computers.

It doesn't appear that Eslava wants to turn his design pieces into mass merchandise, but I wouldn't be one bit surprised if some entrepreneur somewhere decided to capitalize on the concept of religious-themed USB drives. They'd probably have the same user base as the cross-shaped MP3 player.
