LaCie RuggedKey by Neil Poulton

It is reassuring to know that your USB memory stick can fall from a 25-storey building and survive. The LaCie RuggedKey by Neil Poulton can do that…plus, plus. In a hard-to-lose and styling hazard-orange case, this designer stick is able to withstand 100-meter drops, weather extremes of heat and cold, and serve as a keychain to boot. It features USB 3.0 for blazing transfer speed (an HD movie in under a minute), it’s USB 2.0-compatible, and it offers practically uncrackable AES 256-bit encryption. Award-winning industrial designer Poulton—Scottish-born, Paris-based!—clearly excels at his specialty: simple, mass-produced items. Here at the MR Shock Testing Lab, we haven’t yet determined what drop the average USB stick can sustain without damage, and we do like the RuggedKey guarantee! In 16GB/32GB for $39.99/$69.99.
