The world's smallest 8GB flash drive

It weighs less than a nickel and is only a little bigger than a quarter.

Super Talent

We've always been curious about Super Talent's name, and finally its origins are slowly becoming clear to us: It must be some kind of allusion to Hollywood celebrities, because the company seems obsessed with the anorexic dimensions of its storage devices.

The latest example of this apparent fixation is what it calls "the world's smallest 8GB drive," according to Fareastgizmos. Indeed, even with the countless flash drives on the market, the ultra-petite "Pico-C" would be hard to beat in the shrinkage department. It weighs less than a nickel and is only a little bigger than a quarter, as shown in the picture above.

The only potential problem, however, is that it may be too small. It's a good thing that the drive is water-resistant, because it's bound to be forgotten in somebody's pocket and end up in the wash.
