Music Box USB gives storage an antique spin

If you've a thing for nostalgia, this antique music box has a pretty modern spin--a USB drive.

If you've a thing for nostalgia, this antique music box has a pretty modern spin--a USB drive. What we couldn't discern was whether this Music Box USB is capable of producing any tinkles, digital or otherwise, or if it's just a husk. All the literature onsite says is it's an iron music box modified into a USB drive.

Designer Bertrand Planes has also attempted to add more functionality by imbuing the top lever with the scroll wheel properties of a mouse. Not a very ergonomic choice, which may account for only five of these music boxes being released as limited-edition collectibles. For all else, such as storage capacity and price, you'll have to buzz Mr. Planes since you can only get one request.
