Super Talent unearths Terra Cotta Warrior USB drivesSuper Talent is offering some terra cotta warrior USB drives that are life-like replicas of the ancient Xi’an warriors. They are just, you know, about 7cm tall. They’re fully compatibility with USB 1.1 and 2.0 and can be had in 1GB-8GB capacity. The drive also supports password protection.

In case you weren’t aware, in 1974 in Xi’an, China farmers were digging a well and discovered a huge underground cavern containing thousands of life sized terra cotta warriors. It was all very Indiana Jones. Funny thing is, in two thousand years, they’ll dig up a stash of these drives that some dude laid out all in a row and attribute some deep meaning to how we shaped our drives into the likeness of warriors. But really, some dude in a warehouse was just playing army guys.
