Empty Memory – the USB thumb drive that inspires existential thoughts

Empty Memory alone

Before we even get into this, this is the least practical thing but it is so pretty and in the world of tech, function usually overtakes form but this is the perfect example of how we can all make technology beautiful and meaningful. The Empty Memory is the USB drive the symbolizes the act of storing.

The stick part of this beautifully crafted piece of jewelry holds literally empty space to match the empty data space that you choose to fill as you want. So symbolic, so deep, it holds 8 or 16 GB of memory.

It’s made from stainless steel and is hand polished in a variety of colors. Sure you can get a cheaper memory stick and yes, it will hold your data just as well but it won’t look this good. It won’t inspire deep thoughts of your interactions with modern technology. It will just be functional. Why just be functional when you can be beautiful? The Empty Memory is £45.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
