The Mnemosyne USB guards memories with a puzzle
Bringing the design of USB drives into new dimensions, SolidAlliance releases the puzzle-like Mnemosyne.
Named for the Greek goddess of memory, the 16GB Flash Drive is designed to act as a modern instrument for guarding the most important and unforgettable of memories.
Unlike common USB Flash Drives, the Mnemosyne houses its memory within the inner part of its body, requiring users to disassemble a puzzle to retrieve their data.
The device is a cube, with sides measuring 72 millimetres each and consisting of five polished silver pieces and one black piece that acts as the actual USB.To reach the USB Flash Drive, the pieces must be made to slide away in the correct order and in the correct direction.
Intricate and time-consuming, the Drive acts more as a safe-guard rather than a simple memory-storing device and is ideal for those seeking extra security on their hardware files.
Carved from a solid block of aluminium, the metal was chosen for its precious, bulky and heavy qualities.
The Mnemosyne is the design of Toshi Satoji Design, a Milan based studio, and carries a price tag of 7,400 Euro.
