This isn’t your typical external HD design, by any means. With this USB HD concept from Green Banana you won’t just be storing your info mindlessly. You will have something cool to occupy your eyes. The drive has an OLED screen, the design on the screen changes depending on the contents of the drive. Each file is represented on screen by a shape that is proportional to the filesize.
As you add more files, the shapes diversify. It doesn’t just look pretty, it can help you manage your drive better, allowing you to see how much space is left on your drive easily, and how it is being used. Think of it as art created from your data. For the moment, it remains but a concept, but if you like the idea, you can download a free copy of the software that the display is based on.
I for one, would love to see more storage devices like this. Of course, I like my world to look like a Sci-Fi movie, with lots of colors and flashing lights.
