Star Wars Lightsabers in USB Flash Drive Form

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 31 comments

The Force, powered by USB.

Novelty USB flash drives can be the perfect example of geeky utility. Aside from Transformers USB that actually transform, the next coolest thing could be USB Lightsabers that actually light up.

These official Lucasfilm licensed USB products come in both Darth Vader's red design or Luke Skywalker's green design and measure five inches long. Capacity-wise, they're not much at only 1GB, but the appeal of this product isn't related to storage – it's about having a glowing Lightsaber protruding from your USB port. Sadly, they don't make any noise.

ThinkGeek is now selling these for $20 each.

    Maybe bump up the capacity to something more common like 4gig or more and have it make the activation and deactivation sound sound when you plug it in and pull it out. I'd pay a little extra for that

    I know... am sick of all these "novelty" storage devices cheeping out on the storage and then charging you a premium just because it lights up... Wooooo... Why does it feel like these where inspired by episodes 1-3... :p

    Ya I'm not going to pay for a little red or green penis for my computer.

    Put in on a cable and make it a larger external drive that you can swing around with noises maybe...

    Delightsaber is more like it. Sorry, I don't need to carry around a measly 1G flash drive that's nearly half a foot long.

    I may have just woke someone up from laughing. =)

    Though 1GB, that's about enough to hold a few text documents. =)

    Thank you for clarifying that these are "Star Wars" Lightsabers.

    For a minute there I may have confused them with the Lightsabers from Babylon 5 or Star Trek...
