Porcelain USB drive for the dinner table

It definitely bucks the latest macho trends.

Charles & Marie

It's always nice to see some individualism expressed in technology, especially when it's bucking a trend. A lot of macho USB storage keys, for example, tout their toughness in surviving everything from nuclear blasts to being run over by a car . But this 1GB porcelain USB drive takes the opposite approach as it "turns the traditional notion of a memory stick on its head and offers a hand crafted, beautifully glazed piece of technology in a non-tech body," according to Charles & Marie. It even comes in its own dainty little hand-knit pouch, as Uber-Review notes.

We're not terribly fond of porcelain, much less knitted cases, but the idea of its LED "glowing through the china" is intriguing. And it would be a perfect match with this robot fish we've been meaning to get.
