    It would be better if it squirmed a little as you did read/writes.

    The ASUS eeePC is actually made by decapitating these lovely creatures.

  3. Richard Kirk says:

    Is this the deluxe version version where the limbs spasm and twitch when transferring data, and go limp when the drive is unmounted?

    @2 Oh I hope so.
    Nightmares are made of this.

  5. Takuan says:

    that should be doable, perhaps a hack on the USB humping dog?

    Taken to its logical conclusion, there should be a usb drive with the legs of the Wicked Witch of the East.

    OOOOOH, I want this, does it shriek when its head is ripped off???

    Nigh twenty dollars for a mere gigabyte?! I mean, c’mon!

  9. Pendrift says:

    Love the idea, but a tad overpriced for 1 GB. (OK, we’re paying for the “cool gory” factor, but still.)
    I’d pick up a small plush toy, decapitate it, and make a similar set-up, it shouldn’t be too hard to do this at home.

    #6 Pendrift – keep the stuffing stuck out around the edges for that authentic destructive-three-year-old look!

    Hm! You might be onto something there! Someone else has already made one that would only hump during data transfers. All that would be required is some minor work to incorporate the dog’s internals into a teddy toy. Same principle, anyway.

    I don’t have the free time to do it right now, but I’ll have to make a note of it for later. That might be a really fun project.

    + I always wanted a hacked Furby that does the spinning head scene out of the exorcist. any takers?

    Mmm… nightmare time. The little red bow is a good touch.

    Now see, I have always hated the little USB drive mods. Now this, however, I like!

    And yes, make it squirm and shriek too, please!

    It’s our decade’s version of the car accessory that makes it look like you crushed Garfield in the trunk.

    That’s the coolest USB device I’ve seen all year. Absolutely brilliant. I might try a DIY version.

  17. RJ says:

    I can’t even begin to say how awesome that would be. With a little creative engineering, it could probably be built relatively cheaply, too.

    I wanted this to be a slot-loading drive recall story.

    They should make one that’s a gerbil…
