When the first flash drives surfaced they were nothing more than way to store data that was more robust and easy to carry with you than a CD or floppy disc. At some point along the way the drives moved from utilitarian devices into the realm of devices that people buy for their cool factor rather than any need for more storage. This is the point where the fashionable and collectible flash drives became popular.


We have hoards of flash drives on the market today that will store your data, but they allow look like weird food, animals, and even Star Wars characters. Active Media Products makes a lot of flash drives that certainly fall into the fashion category. The latest offering for the company is a golden bullet flash drive designed to look like a .50 caliber bullet.

The drive is offered in 4GB of 8GB capacity and can be purchased on Amazon right now for $12.45 for the 4GB and $21.95 for the 8GB. The case of the drive is made from aluminum and it has a keychain and key ring included. The drive is waterproof and shock resistant and works with Mac or Windows computers.
