Although first discovered by the guns at Nordic Hardware a couple of weeks back, Corsair have just officially launched their latest "Flash Readout" USB drives. These have a small BCD (Bi-stable Cholesteric Display) which provides information such as amount of space used/free and the type of data stored on it. Although not a necessity, you have to admit they're kinda cool!
