USB drive made out of 4.5 billion years old meteorite
(Nanowerk News) Apophis is the latest creation of ZaNa Design. The casing of this very(!) expensive 64 GB USB stick is made of 200 years old African Black Wood, considered to be the most luxurious wood in the world. The whole device is covered with 925 silver or 18-carat gold if you feel silver is to cheap a choice.
The stick is decorated with little pieces and dust from a 4.5 billion years old meteorite. Its name 'Apophis' refers to a near-Earth asteroid that caused a brief period of concern in December 2004 because initial observations indicated a small probability that it would strike the Earth in 2029.
Its price? Well, you can't afford it if you have to ask (it's $1,990 for the gold version).
