Mini-SD? T-flash? Oink, oink...

Memory card reader shaped like a piggy bank.

Brando

Most computer peripherals are already available in tons of wacky incarnations: speakers , mice , keyboards , and of course USB storage drives . But memory card readers have, at least until this point, remained pretty boring. Cue Brando's USB Piggy Card Reader, which really does look just like a piggy bank. It can handle, according to ProductDose, SD, CF, XD, MS, Mini SD, and T-flash/Micro SD cards. And it connects to your computer via a USB 2.0 "tail." Sure, it might be taking the definition of "memory hog" (oink, oink) a little too literally, but it's still cool. Tip: Pair it with these speakers .

And remember: it is the Year of the Golden Pig .
