I like things that server dual purposes, even if one of them is a bit silly. Of course, it has to be just the right amount of silly. A mouse that also serves as a whoopie cushion is probably a bit over the top. However, if I can get an external hard drive that lets me stack LEGOs on it, count me in.
This new Zip Zip External Hard Drive (not yet listed on their site, unfortunately) looks like a giant 16 x 10 peg LEGO brick. It isn’t an officially licensed LEGO product, but it will work with the popular bricks, much the same way as other Zip Zip offerings. I’ve never had much interest in LEGO thumb drives, but with these external drives, you can build new creations on your desk time and time again. Look for these to go on sale during the holiday season.
