Ever heard of a USB drive that uses a fish’s brain to store data? The fish brain USB drive was described as having multiple electronic components connected to the brain of a dead fish.
These are the 32GB flash drives that were designed to look like the storage actually takes place in the brain of a small silver-striped round herring fish encased in resin.
But sadly it doesn’t work in that way, it’s just a tiny 32GB flash drive with a resin stick attached and some wires and capacitors inside to complete the illusion. But real or just a decorative piece, it looks really cool.
It appears that Twitter user @ni28_xp has a knack for creating intriguing USB flash drives. Ni28_XP is a chemistry student currently studying resins. He noted that it is a handmade USB memory drive that allows you to see various electronic parts connected to a small fish, which has been captured in a transparent resin.
The small fish, of course, is dead, but this technology allows him to utilize the small fish as part of his design and this particular fish USB flash drive will be exhibited and sold at an event called HandMade in Japan Fes ‘Winter’ 2019 on January 12, 2019.
And it is not cheap, @ni28_xp has priced this 32 GB USB 3.0 item at 7,800 Yen a piece, or about 72 American dollars based on the current going rate.
Here are the similar USB drives that come in similar design. Of course, without the dead fish in it:
Still, we won’t stop you from buying one and telling a friend it really does operate on a dead fish’s brain.
