Wooden memory sticks


Ok, this is getting ridiculous. USB memory sticks seem to be entering a world of one-up-man-ship when it comes to design. We've already had USB sushi, but this time Dutch company Ooms has taken the literal meaning of "stick," and created a USB drive that is exactly that, a genuine wooden stick. According to Ooms, "The sticks are picked from the woods and are manually selected on their natural beauty."

The sticks come in three sizes with relative pricing; 256MB (€45), 512MB (€60) and 1GB (€70).

What's next in the battle of memory stick design? My suggestions: the USB "Memory Mug" - "Have a data drink, backup your files while enjoying a hot cup of coffee", or the "Flash Cap" - "Wherever I lay my hat (that's my homepage)"

Go to Oooms for the memory sticks, or if you're a company wanting to manufacture my incredible ideas, use our contact page.
