MEGATech Showcase: Revenge of the Flash Drives Beth Snyder September 6, 2011 Features It’s that time again! You know you love flash drives as much as I do. This collection is not the same as some of the previous posts, though…it gets a little risque at the end. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. First, we have a flash drive for those ladies who, for some reason, don’t want anyone to know they’re really computer geeks. I don’t get it, but I’ve seen it more than once. The lipstick flash drive is available in 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB versions, measures about 17 x 17 x 98mm, and weighs about 10g. Price ranges from $16.00 to $25.00 US depending on which one you want.

These only come in 4GB, and are available for $25.00 US each. Source: Ladies’ Gadgets Victorinox enters into the fray with its Swiss Army Slim Flash Drive. It’s available in five colours (silver, orange, green, blue, pink) and comes in either single 4GB to 64GB or duo 2 x 64GB varieties. The Slim lives up to its name, measuring only 58 l x 16 w x 7 h mm and weighing just 10g. It is both waterproof and shock-resistant, which is nice for those of you who tend to carry your flash drives in your pants pocket. Prices are all over the map depending on where you shop (seriously…I’ve found them ranging anywhere from $40.00 to $259.00 US), so I highly recommend shopping around.

These come in a variety of colours, but unfortunately I cannot seem to find anything about their capacity or price or even if they’re actually available. Source: Ladies’ Gadgets It seems Ladies’ Gadgets is dominating this post, but I’m sure it’s really the luck of the draw. This particular flash drive doubles as a gold-plated accent for your bag…perhaps for the same type of woman who would carry the lipstick drive. It will only hold 2GB, and measures 1.9 x 0.75 x 0.25 inch. Since it really is gold-plated, this one will run you $45.00 US. Source: Ladies’ Gadgets This is the one I warned you about. Introducing the Duet Flash Drive and Vibrator. Yep… it’s exactly what you’re thinking, and quite honestly I don’t understand why you would want to combine those two things ever, if only from a sanitary standpoint. Anyway, the flash drive portion will hold 8GB or 16GB of data (I’m just going to go out on a limb and assume photos or videos), will be in three colours (chocolate, black and crimson), and features four vibration modes as well as five speeds. This one is still a concept, but it is currently at 360% of funds pledged to turn it into a reality, so it looks like you should actually be able to get one.
