LaCie Announced the Culbuto Flash Drive

Today, LaCie announced the Culbuto, a quirky USB key brought to life by French designer Constance Guisset.

"The search for movement and balance is essential in my work," said Constance Guisset, product designer. "Repeated and infinite oscillation fascinates me. For my first project with LaCie, I proposed a slightly roly-poly key that eventually became LaCie Xtremkey. When LaCie asked me to develop this idea, Culbuto was the result. It's an irresistibly fun USB key."
