Ice Cream Bars and Data Storage: Two Wonderful Things in One

This USB and external hard drive set from Mintpass is one sweet combo. The Korean company played with words in creating the design, as "hard" is the Korean term for icecream. So the "hard" drive/dessert hybrid is a perfect and clever match.

And it doesn't just look pretty—the design functions smartly too. The flash drive, or "stick," is used with a computer to grab any files you want backed up. Then you insert the drive into the ice cream body and it automatically grabs and backs up the files.

The set comes in three "flavors" or sizes: Chocolate is a 120 GB hard drive and 8GB USB, Strawberry is 80GB and 4GB, and Vanilla is 60GB and 2GB. Right now the product is still in the concept stage, but I'd love to see it on the market.
