The nuke-proof USB drive

Developed for U.S. military

R&D Electronics

If there's one piece of computer equipment that is meant to survive extreme conditions, it's the USB drive. We've seen models that are shockproof , waterproof and weatherproof , so it's not surprising that the U.S. military would come up with one that's nuke-proof too.

R&D Electronics says its "IronDrive" has been "tested for high temperature, shock, vibration, caustic agents, submersion, EMI, and nuclear stresses," making it "the ideal USB drive for harsh military and commercial environments." As Everything USB notes, the chunky drive looks as if it could be used as a weapon in hand-to-USB combat. We actually thought it resembled those old German stick grenades.
