Meet the ultimate in hipster hard drives

Modded Moleskine notebook makes a great hard drive enclosure.

Those little black Moleskine notebooks, once the scribble space of choice for Picasso and Hemingway, are now pretty much known as mandatory gear for brooding coffee-shop hipsters and aspiring indie rockers. But little did we know, they also make great external hard drives. A blogger by the name of Sebastian Delmont recently noticed a correlation between the sizes of his Moleskine journal and a hard drive, and cleverly realized that he could modify one of the sleek black books as the external casing for an internal laptop hard drive--saving a lot of cash in the process.

And there you have it, the Moleskine Hard Drive, constructed from a standard-sized Moleskine journal and an inexpensive Cool Drives hard drive. Perfect for storing all your bootlegged songs from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah shows.
