Meet the ultimate in hipster hard drives

Modded Moleskine notebook makes a great hard drive enclosure.

Sebastian Delmont

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.
