    Well, I am looking to purchase myself a new USB key for file transport from home to work, etc. One of the features I desire is the almighty "cool factor". One that is enjoyable to show to people, a conversation topic if you please... I realize that this usually isn't the most affordable way to buy USB keys, but sometimes a good icebreaker is worth a few extra bucks.

    I previously owned a Swiss Army USB Key/Knife, which I really liked, but alas it is lost. The one below is a cool one I've found, but I was wondering if there were any other really cool ones out there that you would recommend. Post some photos of your favorite "cool USB KEY!"

    The iDisk is definitly cool. Although, if I lost my last one, can you imagine how long this one would be around?

    Hahaha, I love it! I did not personally take part in such activities of course, but if I had, I think I would rather bring a bigger knife. It was only about an inch and a half long.

    I really like this one but the capacity is really low, it is designed to be a USB mix tape rather than a data device.

    Well it's only for pro killers. Psh. No amateur can kill with that knife.

    I thought both of these were amusing, not that I would ever use any of them though.

    Peoples eyes open wide when I start unscrewing the USB key out of its protective tube. Combined with truecrypt it really just yells "I am hard core about how I keep my data". You can pick up an 8gig one for about $60, maybe less.

    ohmygosh, dllavaneras, that headless bear may well be the funniest thing I have ever seen!!! :D Can you please post the link for it?

    And that goes for the rest of you, too - post links to those amazing things you've found!

    And am I the only person who's ever thought that if they're going to call it a thumb drive, then it should look like ... well, you know... a thumb? :cool:

    They exist too (as do finger-shaped nose hair clippers, but that's driving the motor off the road).

    Make magazine seems to feature the make-your-own with regularity, which is the first place I saw the lego ones.

    Well, all I have is an Engadget link. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. :(

    Love the Lego ones.

    I have one like this (2GB) and another similar one (1GB).

    Always afraid that I will loose them.

    Like that one!

    Sushi ones are cool. So many versions.

    Awesome! :)

    Still have mine, but with all my other thumb drives, I don't use it much.

    Interesting.
