Portable storage is great to transfer data, and I’ve had progressively larger capacity flash drives (aka thumb drives, USB keys, jump drives, memory sticks, more). But size isn’t everything, appearance and personality improve on utility. In addition to my StarWars and micro flash drives, I’ve found another compelling device that continues to delight.
The LaCie Culbuto USB key, designed by Constance Guisset, brings magic, movement, and whimsy to my desktop and other functional workspaces. My inner child has been embraced with this device that is always up for playing around. With black and gold (Mizzou colors), weighing under a third of a pound and standing about 4” tall, this is a new and entertaining tool.
Whether dancing across my desktop or connected to a computer, the LaCie Culbuto earns its keep. When it’s taking a break from storing my files, the LaCie Culbuto is a graceful photo or card holder on my desk. I just remove the cap and plug it into my MacBook Pro to carry files or move them elsewhere.
Featuring USB 3.0, the LaCie Culbuto lets me transfer files up to four times faster than with USB 2.0. With 16GB of capacity (32GB also available), I can back up many important files or store hundreds of movies or thousands of songs. Easy setup, passworded access and automatic worry-free backup for Mac (and PC) computers ensures that my files remain completely protected. Its a little bulky to carry in the pocket, but fits easily into my computer or iPad bag.
The LaCie Cubuto USB key can be purchased for $49.99 (16GB) or $79.99 (32GB) from www.lacie.com/products. This is one of many fine products available from LaCie including many types of storage media, displays, USB keys, accessories and more. Its terrific to have tools that can be fun to use too.
