The HAL 9000 Memory Unit. Oh boy at last, a chance to live out our wildest Space Odyssey fantasies in the privacy of our own sofa room. Inserting and removing 1 GB of HAL’s USB memory over and over again, while listening to an MP3 of his final moments. Bliss doesn’t come any better than this, does it? $69.99. “Daisy, Daisy….”
HAL was created in 1992 at the HAL plant in Illinois… then had some minor “issues” during a 2001 space mission. Subsequently HAL’s memory units were removed for later examination and some of these happened to fall into our hands… or that’s what some Dave guy told us. Technology wasn’t quite as refined back then but these slim USB thumb drives can hold 1 Gig of your files and interface using USB 2.0, an engineering miracle at the time.
