Japanese Fan USB driveWe’ve seen plenty of USB flash drives, but usually they don’t come in such an elegant form. This one comes from where else? Japan. The Japanese Sensu Fan USB Drivetakes the age old Japanese fan and incorporates a modern flash drive.

The Japanese Sensu Fan USB Drive comes with 16GB of storage and is a bit pricey at $300. I mean, this fan isn’t even motorized. You have to cool yourself by hand. And you can’t even do that while it’s in the USB port.

$3,000 Steampunk USB flash driveWe love Steampunk around here. We’ve certainly featured our share of steampunk gadgets. And this USB drive is another pretty nice example of the art form, but it’s insanely priced at $3000. I would pay maybe $100 for this flash drive. Maybe $300 if I had some disposable money.

It has some great detail work and looks pretty awesome, so it’s a shame that it’s priced so high that no one will own it. Could be a typo, but somehow I doubt it. Now the Steampunk phone from Russia. That I could pay handsomely for.

Bomb USB Flash Drive

Bomb USB Flash DriveThis USB drive concept is a throwback to the days of mustache twirling villains and bombs with crazy long fuses that usually blew up in your hands. It’s from designer Joel Escalona who probably likes to tie helpless women to railroad tracks while laughing maniacally.

Someone manufacture this thing already, so Joel doesn’t end up wearing black and white stripes and working on the chain gang. Sure it looks deadly(In a comical way) in black, but in red,yellow and white it just looks silly. Still, Joel thinks it’s “da bomb”, so what do ya say?
