`Star Wars' Flash Drives Bring `A New Hope'
Star Wars designer flash drives give computer geeks everywhere `a new hope.'
Wednesday, April 28, 2010 17:28 GMTBOSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) A company that makes designer USB flash drives is giving computer geeks a new hope for storing data.
MIMOBOT has just released a collection of Star Wars flash drives resembling iconic characters from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
The series includes a flash drive R2-D2, a Stormtrooper with a removable helmet that reveals either Luke Skywalker or Han Solo underneath, and an Obi-Wan Kenobi, specifically requested by fans.
MIMOBOT founder Evan Blaustein says the gadgets make perfect sense because Star Wars fans tend to use computers a lot anyway.
Since regular flash drives are pretty bland, designer ones can really personalize a work space.
He says, Its like you have a little friend safely storing your important data.
Blaustein imagines that a conference or seminar would be much more fun if a businessman or professor plugged Obi-Wan Kenobi into their laptop rather than a boring old USB drive.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
