Flash drives are a dime a dozen, and many of of them look exactly alike. But every so often, you'll find that a company goes out of their way to really differentiate their product. Super Talent is a known name in the USB / flash storage space, and they're the ones going out of their way this time. The new CKB flash drive not only fits on a keychain, but it actually looks like a key, too.

 

Basically, this new drive gives new meaning to "USB Key," and it's shaped just like a key. It's made from metal and comes in two colors, nickle and black. Each color is available in a variety of sizes: 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB. It supports USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 (no USB 3.0 support), and it's also water resistant. No pricing information is available yet.

Looks more like a bottle-opener... but I guess you see what you want to see.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

They were giving away small USB drives in Vegas last year that were Dancing Girls.

When you accessed the drive a pair of lights flashed at you. (guess where they were?)

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

This whole key-like thing has been done before. I must have a few pieces of USB swag from trade shows that look like real keys with company logos on them.

Also a lot of folks like the Lacie ImaKey model.
