    Active Media Products, manufacturer of SSDs and innovative USB drives, today announced two new key shaped USB 2.0 flash drive models, dubbed the Key-3 and Key-4. Both models, in addition to AMP's earlier Key-2 model, are available now in 4GB and 8GB capacities through Amazon.com.

    "We have three distinctive styles of key shaped drives, all of which feature chrome finished metal casings. These Key drives give you a fashionable new way to carry your data." stated Active Media Products' VP of Sales, Jerry Thomson. All three water resistant Key drive models are designed using chip-on-board (COB) technology, which enables a high density, high performance drive in a shockingly thin casing that is only about 3mm thick. The sleek key shape fits on any key chain and holds an surprising amount of data - up to 2400 six megapixel photos or up to 2000 MP3 songs. These Key drives are compatible with Windows, Linux and OS X, and USB 3.0, 2.0 and 1.1.

    now if they could just mod the one on the left to be a bottle opener - that would make these fly off the shelf

    i prefer using smaller ones like micro SD card readers - they're smaller so the odds of sitting on them and snapping them is much lower.


    keys do go in pockets, and these flash drive designers seem to forget that.

    You are right, those are total rip-offs of the LaCie key flash drives.
