1.5 years ago I published the original ‘Top 10 weirdest USB drives‘. Over 500 000 people have visited the original page, and it included all of the sushi drives, the thumb drive and the now classical barbi drive. I’ve received quite many comments and emails about the list, and I know that some of you guys wants an updated list. So here it is – Top 10 weirdest USB drives, Part II’. All new drives!
10. The USB Puppet Bags
Ok, I admit – this isn’t a complete USB drive – it’s only a masquerade costume for your boring typical, standard USB drive. Quite weird design, ey?

9. The Altoids USB mod
How about a nice little metal Altoids box sticking out of your computer? This nice little USB drive is designed by Phillip Mates.

8. The USB mince pie
Check out this incredible detailed and accurate mince pie reproduction. I wonder why they placed that little LED on top, as I think it would be even cooler without it.

7. Wooden memory sticks
I really like these wooden USB drives from the dutch company oooms. They are quite expensive (about $90 for the 1GB version) but they are all made out of real wooden pieces by hand.

6. The Holy bible drive
This USB drive comes with the bible on it. The connector is hidden inside the bible so you have to use a little sliding switch before you can use it. I wonder if you’ll go to hell if you store prOn on the holy bible?

5. Crazy rabbit usb drive
This freaky little rabbit USB drive is designed by Micah Laaker, the design manager for Yahoo!’s personalization, RSS and membership teams. Cool one, right?

4. The Bowling ball USB drive
Ok, now things are really getting weird. How would you like to drag around on a full weigh (16 pounds / 7 kg) ten-pin bowling ball? This one is actually a fully functional USB drive that is capable of breaking your little laptop into pieces. It’s designed by Chris Spurgeon.

3. Chewbacca drive
Jeremy Harrington is the man behind this really nice Star Wars Chewbacca USB drive. It’s not a geeky little Chewiw mimobot – this is the real thing! Yeah! Hear me roar!

2. The Humping dog USB memory
Yes! We’re finally getting closer to the number one position, only one mor to go. Here’s a really weird little USB drive that has one thing that is really unique – it features moving parts. As soon as you plug the humping dog into your computer it starts humping it. Check out this video clip to see it in action! Who! Who! Who let the dogs out!

1. The Teddy USB memory
Drumroll please! Tada, here’s the final winner. It’s a bit different than the last winner (the USB Barbie drive) but it’s still a really cool and weird USB drive. You just rip the head off and plug it in! It’s designed by Sergio de Ana and as it doesn’t look like a typical USB drive, it’s probably quite safe to store data in it as long as you keep it’s head on! I bet you have to be careful with this one to not scare the kids, hehe.
