usb-coin-flash-drives-1

When it comes to flash drives, we’ve seen some pretty cool designs (see also: strange) that include jewelry, action figures, animals, food and otherwise. However, these LaCie CurrentKey USB flash drives are somehow special. They are designed to look like coins but only a bit thicker. The work of the 5.5 Design firm, these flash drives feature a metal shock-proof/durable die-cast build and come in bronze for the 4GB version ($19.99) and silver for the 8GB ($29.99). Compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux, we can’t say for sure if you’ll wear these in your purse or wallet, or if they’ll become currency in the near future, but they sure look fresh… [via Yatzer]
