Geeks don't accessorize quite the same as norms. Matching your shoes with your shirt places you at the top of the fashion totem pole at most computer conventions. That being said, everybody likes a bit of flair every now and again, and geeks are no different. When you want to draw admiring "Ooohs" and "Aaahs" out of your tech-loving pals, you can pull Mimobot's new retro Transformer USB drives out of your pocket and rest easy knowing you're sporting the Gucci of the gadget world.
Mimobot, a company specializing in designer USB drives, showed off the pint-sized Optimus Prime and Megatron at the CEA Line Show going on in New York City the past couple of days. Engadget points out that while the retro Transformers don't actually, well, transform, they do come preloaded with Transformer-related screensavers, videos, digital comics, icons, avatars and more.
That Gucci effect comes at Gucci prices, though. Pricing for the line starts at $23 for a 2GB drive and tops off at $60 for a 16GB drive. You can preorder the drives on Mimobot's website and bring the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons to your PC on July 18th. If Transformers don't strike your fancy, check out the other options on Mimobot's website. You can get USB drives sporting all types of cool, geek-related characters, ranging from Hal Jordan to Hoth Luke.
