Designer Neil Poulton is at it again: Yesterday LaCie announced his latest external hard drive design, the Tank.
The treads, of course, are more than metaphorical:
A hard, rugged shell made of rubber and polypropylene snaps securely around your device, keeping out dust and rain. This robust exterior is also shock-resistant and tested against military-grade drop requirements, protecting your data from catastrophic drops...Additionally, the LaCie Tank's padded interior can be customised to fit any shape and size, guaranteeing your hard drive is cushioned and snug for any type of transportation. Simply remove foam cubes to fit your device precisely.
All it's missing is a remote control. If I worked in an office with shared desk space where we all had these, I'd constantly drive mine over to my co-worker's side of the desk and use it to knock his hard drive over the edge.
