Ginchy Series – retro-styled 50s throwback USB drives

Share

Who said there’s nothing cool about a USB drive? Very likely me – but I take it all back after seeing the limited edition Ginchy series of USB drives, designed by Lili Chin for Mimico.

Yes, they’re rather cool 50s throwback rockabilly types, available as three characters – Ramona, Betty and Link (pictured), who lists his interests as "hot rods, guitars, tiki drinks, the beach, pin-ups and poetry". And – from what we can see – cigarettes and Brylcreem.

And of course, they have a practical purpose as USB drives, available in sizes between 256MB and 2GB. Each character is limited to just 500 pieces and are currently available for pre-order, priced from $49.95 (around £27).
